What can I do to stop the itching and burning?
I feel like ripping my skin off!

Hello,

I have some relief from a really hot shower, then a cold one.
Can you get someone to put some moisturiser on you?

Try Eurax cream in 30g tubes from the chemist. I get 2 30g tubes on repeat script from my doctor. It's the only thing that works for me. :-) Hope it eases off soon and you get some :sleep:

My burning and itching is a severe flare-up of ecxma, I use epaderm and Fucidic H and piriton.

Do you take gabapentin? I used to get this and was told I had eczema but when I took gab for Fibro it cleared up. I now only get occasional itchiness. Eurax used to soothe when bad.

My GP prescribes huge drums of oilatum and I find that helps along with making sure I drink plenty of fluids. :-D

I was getting Oilatum shower gel type stuff on repeat script too, I forgot about that :crazy: It was great stuff... all of a sudden I couldn't get it in any chemist, typical :-?
