  • Over-the-counter medication for Eczema

    Since young i have eczema and it comes back when i don't apply cream. All along i go to the doctor for steroid creams like Dermasone, but that's too troublesome at times.

    Any recommendations for an effective over-the-counter medication that is not so expensive, say below $20? Thank you!

    I've got cloderm and fusidin from one of my family doc, seriously speaking, it took one week to clear all the itch and after that, I did lots of moisturizing. I guess many pp will tell u to moisturize and moisturize, that's the key....the best to keep eczema at bay is to moisturize directly after bathing. Do so after u have put on the steroid cream...

    Btw, I hate seeing doc too, but sadly speaking, most steroid creams can only be bought with a prescription, and fyi, even if u have a friend who is a doc, he/she will definitely not be able to give u a prescription to get steroid cream....See a doc!

        I use Cetaphil cream. Moisturising helps to stop the itch and the dryness.
