    Eczema

    Hi Ladies

    Thought I`d post this here in the hope more of you lwill find it.

    Has anyone got a remedy for eczema, I`ve always suffered from it but mainly only in the winter and only midly, well it has blown out of all proportion now and is driving me insane - it`s on my forehead, along my hairline, over my eyes, over my neck and on my chest, I often wake up with myself tearing at my skin.

    Can`t use my prescribed cream since being pregnant so have been using Sorbolene which isn`t working.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I have a huge problem with ezcema as well. I found this brilliant cream called Hopes Relief cream and it has been brilliant. I have been using it on my daughter as well and it has worked a treat. I know that they have a website, but I cant remember what it is.

    Hope you find some relief!

    Hi Dinky
    Thank you for your recommendation, the Dr did prescribe some Sigmacort for me the other day, he says it`s fine for pg women to use but I might buy some of Hopes Relief Cream and use it in conjuction.

    I get eczema round my nose when I'm pregnant and apart from using Sigmacort - which is a cortisone cream, and not good for extended use, I've found Dermaveen is working well for me you just get it from the chemist - I now use it as my daily face cream, and I also haven't been getting any pimples, which I find I usually get from face cream.
