I saw something on here recommending a product from BB.
My boy (21) <Yeah, I know, but he's still my boy!>, is having a flare up on arms and face. Hydrocortisone doesn't work for him and never has.
Any advice from the Wise Ones?

I have struggled with my daughters eczema for years, and although I am pretty sure there is no cure, I have minimalised it using Aveno, from normal drug stores, every where on her body after a bath and then when that has absorbed completley , putting diprobase cream on it over-night , hope this helped!

Try o'keefes working hands which you can get on amazon. Its about £7. absolutely amazing. Husband gets terrible excema with open wounds all over his hands. Using this is amazing with no steroids. You can also get one for cracked heels which is also fab.

Apparently it promtes natural skin repair rsther than thinning the skin like steroids do.
