I have had excema since child hood and now both of my shins

Customer Question

Hello,
I have had excema since child hood and now both of my shins are very dry and itchy and end up with a raised bump like rash. I get similar dry bumps all over my body. Steroid creams help. Any other thoughts

Thanks for this question

have you tried oral antihistamines?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
they don't have an effect. Can you prescribe me more triamcinolne?
Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 5 months ago.

I cannot do that online

I'm sorry

that is illegal

you could try OTC hydrocortisone
