My other half & my 3 year old daughter both suffer with eczema.
I have been with my partner for 12 years and at the moment I am seeing him go through the longest & worst flare up since we've been together. His usual patches are front of neck, inner arms, behind knees and he always has to moisturise with a greasy emollient twice a day which used to keep it pretty much in check. However for around the last year it has been spreading all over his body, he is constantly itchy which is driving him crazy plus it's spread into his scalp & onto his face - his eyes are v dry, red & puffy. We think hay fever is causing the eye issue. He has had to have around 5 courses of oral steroid this year so far but can't keep doing that long term. He has also tried the light therapy through our local Nhs hosp too but it's had no effect.
Does anyone have any tips, have you tried any homeopathy etc as the usual medical treatments are really not working! I feel so sorry for him!
