Anybody with BP also have Eczema? If so, what do you take for it?

Hi everybody,
Just wondering if any of you suffer from eczema. My husband has had it for years now and everytime he switches to his hyper, negative, hateful mood it flares up really bad. He has it on his chin. He's using a cream for it that he was given by the doctor but when he's in this mood it really doesn't help. When he's in his I love everything mood it's nonexistant. I know the ultimate solution would be to get his moods stabilized but he's fighting me on getting new treatment.
If anyone of you have it what do you take for it that helps?
Thanks,
Nodi

I have it and I use a liquid soap from the pharmacy that is for stap and it gets rid of it in a day or two. It is not a prescription, but you have to ask for it. It is called Hibiclens. I get it on my scalp and I even wash my hair with this stuff and it clears it up.Good luck

Thanks!
I will let him know about it.
Mudhound,
It seems to be hereditary. His mom has a little bit and so did our niece when she was a baby. If he didn't have BP I don't think it would flare up as often though. Or if he was stabilized for that matter.
Take Care,
Nodi
