need recommendations

Postby myrajacob on Tue Jul 31, 2018 5:47 am

Right now I’m suffering from severe eczema and it already covered up my right leg and both of my arms. My eczema appeared when I was still a baby and now that I’m 20, it became a huge burden for me to even walk since my right foot is covered up with eczema and whenever I take a step it will cut open causing me to stop in my tracks in the middle of the road or on the way .. I’ve seen so many doctors in my lifetime and yet it doesn’t heal, my skin peels off. My eczema has always been present in my body, there times when they just became a little okay but most of the time they’re worse. Right now my current doctor advised me to eat tons of fruit and vegetable and avoid spirit based creams and gel, I guess it’s working pretty nicely.
I am looking at recommendations for some good body lotions that can be used in everydayhealth routine and that won’t make my eczema look flaky, dry and peel off.
