Skin atrophy caused by topical steroids

Hi, I have developed skin atrophy on my genital area due to overuse of topical steroids in an attempt to combat eczema. I have an appointment with my doctor next week but its really worrying me that I have damaged my skin and I can't find any reassurance online so I feel really down about it. I'm using an emollient- aveeno dermexa several times a day to keep the skin hydrated but doesn't lessen my worry. If anyone had any advice or knowledge about this particular issue, I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance.
