Eczema FAQ
I have eczema on my shin and it’s embarrassing to wear shorts because it’s like a big oval of redness. How can I get rid of it? I tried Aveeno cream but it only takes away the itch.

There are some prescription medications out there that do the job. The one i used is protopic and it worked really well, but then i read in the paper that it causes cancer when used a lot. I’m sure it’s fine occassionally, but id talk to your dr.
