He recommended a soap free bath oil and I also use a few Condy's crystals in the bath to help reduce any secondary infections. It cleared up really well and now I just put the advantan on when needed.

    Thanks for the name. Looked it up on google images (good old doctor google!) and it does look similar to what he's got. When we were using the hydrozole (which has a mild steroid in it) it got better. Advantan is also a steroid cream. I think I've used it myself a while ago. So to me it does sound like the eczema you are describing. I'm applying Hope's Relief cream now a few times a day and will get *another* doctor's appointment if things don't improve next week.

    Ask for a referral to a dermatologist while you are there, as it can take weeks to get an appointment. Then you've got it if you need it.
