Hi, I have discoid eczema according to the dermatologist I have just seen. I am awaiting tests to see what I allergic to. I have suffered with my hands for years and have been using steroid cream for years. Last year I had a bad outbreak which affected my face. This year it has affected the rest of my body which is why I am awaiting testing. i have been using epaderm cream prescribed by the doctor and have been taking steroid tablets . Neither really have helped my body, only my face. My body keeps breaking out. I know I am allergic to nickel, perfume and cobalt as I was tested years ago for my hands. Can anybody suggest anything other than epaderm cream. I have been told not yo take steroid tablets anymore by the dermatologist.
