Hii, I am 21 years old (male) and have been victim of eczema since i was about 7 years old. It occurred in various parts like legs,hands and after using medicines it used to go away.
But from last 2 years it is just reoccurring on my face again and again. I start having swollen checks accompanied with big red scars from which yellow liquid comes out and there is too much itching. I had consulted several Dermatologists and every one of them first start giving me moisturizer, oral steroids tablets and usually a antibiotic cream and some steroid and non steroid cream to heal the scars. The prescription is usually for about 2 weeks after I am told to visit again.
Within 2 weeks the swelling and scars reduce to great extent. After the 2 weeks when i visit them again they tell me to stop using the steroid tablets and cream because it cant be used for long. And after that my scars and problems start again. The same cycle is repeating over again again in these 2 years and I am totally frustrated ,depressed by my problems.
I think the solution to my eczema can be cured only by steroids since no other medicine is able to cure me. How do I convince my doctors to prescribe longer use of oral steroids tablets.
