Is my eczema returning?
From flare-ups to treatments, everyone’s experience with eczema can be different. But, when you don’t have the basic knowledge you need to look after your skin, tailoring your treatment routine is a challenge. A great way to learn the best methods for managing your eczema is by asking our skin experts all of your questions!
I used to have eczema as a child but now in my 40s I have a horrible feeling it has come back again on my elbows – would you suggest I see a doctor or just treat with a standard cream to see what happens? I know it can come back as an adult but is it normal for it to come back so late? Thanks (Sarah)
