Re: Is this eczema and if so how do I treat it?
Eczema for me has been a real pain in the hiney. I get it all the time too. Just like how you mentioned. I use the steroid cream and it works but I don't want to use it all the time. Some things that have given me a little bit of relief is tea tree oil products. Head and shoulders with zinc. Also calamine lotion soothes the itching. Yet, it just doesn't go away so easily...if anything it seems to relocate to another part of my body. I was dx'd with eczema last year. I never had skin problems as a kid or a young adult. I am sorry you go through this, I can relate. Its frustrating, sometimes even embarrassing.
