Since i was 12, and now i'm 20, i've been using topical steroids to control my eczema flare ups (usually betamethasone). For years it worked. But last year in January my mother's friend, seeing what's happening, told me that i should stop using corticosteroids as they thin my skin. My mother took it seriously and i stopped using them in February. For 2 months my skin was worse than ever. But in the April, redness, oozing, itching and burning started to fade away quickly. At the end of April 2017, my skin were cured.
About 6 months, i had no problems with my skin and in October, there was a flare up inside my elbow on left arm. I didn't took any topical steroids, but i contacted my mother's friend. She told me that i should only wait and it will go away.
But it was worse and worse every day. A couple of days it becomes better, and worse again, and the cycle was repeating - but in every cycle my symptoms were less worse than before.
Before last NYE, flare was so intense so i had to use topical steroids on face and arms.
Now is February 2017 and i'm still fighting a battle with my skin.
Can someone who got through this tell me is it healing? I think so, because symptoms are better in every flare up that comes.
