I am 19 and have had severe eczema all my life. I was told I would grow out of it so many of the GP's and doctors I saw never took me very seriously when I was young as they just saw me as a guinea pig to try different steroid creams and emollients. Having left college and the stress of working and exams behind I was pleased to say that it did clear up for a while or at least subside for little. Having just come back from travelling from Australia, I found that when I was out there because of all the sunshine I was getting and the healthier food I was having my skin basically cleared up which is a very strange thing for me to say as I thought this day would never come. Unfortunately since I have been home it has started to go back to the old ways and I am doing everything I can to try and stop it from returning. My doctor said to just increase the pills that I am on to make it stronger but the one problem I am having at the moment is trying to find a good emollient. Having been through a lot of the prescribed ones like doublebase, e45, epaderm, diprobase, aveeno and all that I have been forced to try store bought ones but considering there is so many out there I have no idea where to start. I know things containing lanolin are not good and nor is petroleum as its too thick and just feeds the skin but then I want something light as to not clog up my skin but then something that still moisturises it at the same time. Not to be fussy or anything. Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions.
