Allergies board

I am not sure if it is an allergy, but I had the exact thing happen to me last month. I went in to the doctor in December and found out I have developed a mild case of Excema. When I was using the lotion, it was aggrevating it. She gave me a 2% hydrocortisone cream and had me use it for two weeks. I am not able to use the lotion again without all the redness and burning.

She recommended using Eucerine or Lubriderm as gentle lotions. I was using Eucerine when I had the problems. It is OK now though.

By the way, I went to the doctor for extremely itchy ears. She asked if I had had any other skin problems. Turns out I have the excema in my ear canals too.
