I suffer from chronic eczema. I was diagnosed with it about 9 years ago but the dermatologist's recommended treatment was prescription cortisone cream which worked but I quickly exhausted the large tube of cream within a matter of days because of having to cover most of my body from feet to neck so I thought I can't maintain this treatment at $60 a pop for a tube of cortisone cream that only lasted me less than a week. My dermatologist had also suggested applying a moisturizer within 3 minutes of getting out of the shower or bath to lock in the moisture which he said can help since one of the beliefs with eczema is, turns out there are a lot of unknowns with eczema, that dry skin is thought to be a trigger which was a much more reasonable option for me even though I wasn't one for using lotions because they made my skin feel like it was suffocating. Well, shortly after using up the second tube of cortisone cream and not buying a third tube the eczema which was starting to come under control started to flare back up which the doctor had told me would probably happen if I stopped using the cortisone cream so i was getting a little desperate. The desperation left me skeptically open to a conversation I had with some random guy I had encountered for about an hour one day who I thought was a total nut case but he claimed to be a swimmer and suffered from what sounded like eczema to me as a result of being in the pool so much and that his doctor had recommended what is now called Advanced Repair Lotion, I've been using this for so long i can't remember what the original product name was before they changed of it, to use after showering and he swore that it worked and was the only thing that relieved his itchy skin. I'm running out of characters so...I tried it, applying it within 3 minutes of showering, used it daily, and it changed my life, I firmly believe using it calmed the symptoms down allowing my skin to slowly heal. Still using it 9 years later.
