Sorry to hear you have to wait for so long to see a dermatologist. You may find some answers around creams or emollients to help with the itching in our eczema forum here - viewforum.php?f=74 or here viewforum.php?f=36

Hope this helps in some way.

Dear AlysAudrey

I've been using Cetraben Emollient Lotion daily and I find it really helps moisturise and relax my skin. There is no stickiness afterwards and it is easy to apply. It might be worth trying to see if this helps. I have mild eczema and I find certain medication makes my skin very itchy (but I cannot come off the particular medication).

It may also be worth checking to see if there is something that may have aggravated your itching and see if you can avoid it and also ensuring you are drinking enough water.

Hope this helps.
