Hello Tienan

Dont know if this will work for you, but I have recently discovered the joy of using fresh Aloe vera on my skin.

Buy a plant tug off a leaf roll it between your fingers for a minute and then squidge the juice out and spread it around. I use it on my face and ankles and it feels very nice indeed, not as greasy as moisturizer and washes clean with water.

And no side-effects.

Keeps the itchy discoid exzema at bay.

In the past I have used stinging nettles to deal with bad exzema on arms and legs, works better than heavy steroids.
