Good morning everyone,
How are you today?
How do you treat your atopic dermatitis and eczema? Is it effective? Do you take or use a long-term treatment, or do you tend to just treat flares?

@Courtney_J My eczema tends to come and go seasonally now that I'm older, so I treat flares as they come and then generally try to keep myself moisturized. My doctor told me to drink lots of water so I try to do that, and then I try to only shower in lukewarm water so it doesn't dry out my skin as much and I put Johnson's baby oil all over right after coming out the shower and pat myself dry so it stays on my skin. When my eczema is really bad I use a hydrocortisone cream my doctor prescribes and I'll wear long sleeves or I'll bandage up the spots so the cream can stay put and soak in.
