Eczema On My Cheeks, Nose And Forehead
(Sussex, United Kingdom)
I have suffered with Eczema all my life, but recently my face has become infected. I'm not sure this is Eczema but it is located around my cheeks, nose and forehead. All my Doctor will prescribe is Hydrocortisone cream. I'm not at all happy at using this on a consistent basis. I don't know what side effects it can cause but I have had periods where I have felt sick, unable to finish meals, times where I feel I can't take a full deep breath. I am a fit person who does a lot of exercise. I haven't suffered with any of the mentioned symptoms prior to using the hydrocortisone twice a day. Could it be this that is causing these effects? The only reason I use it is because nothing else works. As soon as I stop using it, my face becomes dry and red. There are a lot of products recommended on here but I'm not sure which would work best for me.
