    Do you have a water softener and/or purifier? This has brought a lot of relief to many sufferers of this.

    I haven't been able to get rid of mine either but one thing my doctor told me, that helps is to moisturize a lot. I use Eucerin - it's really greasy and thick, but it prevents the rashes from really getting out of control.

    As with most of our illnesses, stress really sets eczema off.

    My Dr. told me to use Eucerin . The cream rather than the lotion. I do use the lotion some as it is more convenient. They both are a little greasy but it really helps. Also I use Cetaphil to take a bath and have for years. Hope this helps.

    I have eczema triggered by an allergy to preservatives in shampooo. I've found that Clinique make shampoos that are allergy tested. I use their formula for dry hair and I haven't had a problem with it yet. I've also found that jojoba is a good natural moisturizer. I order it online through a company called Hoba Care, their website is Hope this is helpful!

    I had eczema for years - BAD! It is 100% allergy related. I tried everything from herbs, liver cleanses to skin creams. No avail!

    I have been eczema free for 3 years now and I did it by eliminating certain foods from my diet. I cannot eat eggs, unfermented dairy (I eat only goat's milk yogurt), gluten containing grains, citric acid, or sugar.

    If I eat these items, my eczema will return. So PLEASE try an allergy elimination diet and give yourself 3 weeks to heal up before you start adding in foods.

    I haven't read all the replies, so forgive any repetitions.
    Moisturizing is important. Avoid long baths, showers or whirlpool treatments with hot water. Exposure to hot, dry air or cold can cause flareups. It is important to reapply moisturizers. Some people benefit from using non-soap cleansers, which don't irritate the skin so much, like CVS' Gentle Skin Cleanser, which is a generic product you can purchase on-line. Many pharmacies carry products like it. I found that products with alcohol, fragrances and preservatives tend to make my skin condition worse. Good luck.
