Got them

And how did you treat this in the past?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i applied some creme. i forget what are they called. it has been a few years but the scars are still like that.

OK

First off, you still have the eczema

This time around I would prescribe tacrolimus cream for a month

After that I'd give you hydroquinone cream to get rid of the hyperpigmentation or give you cold CO2 laser treatments to get rid of the spots

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
