Hi Shirley...there are 3 recommended topical treatmnents for your condition:

1) high potency steroid creams and ointments

2) tacrolimus cream

3) pimecrolimus cream

All of these are prescription, although you can get lower potency steroid cream/ointment over the counter. Tacrolimus or Pimecrolimus are the best choice for long-term use, as chronic use of steroid creams can thin your skin and leave striations (stripes).
