Excema - gone lumpy

I've been to the doctors about this, but the cream they gave me isn't working. This is a new development for me and skin issues, I just wondered if anyone had experience of anything similar.

Excema on my groin - in pubic hair/around bikini line. Obviously itchy, but also sore - can't wear normal knickers or run.

Dermovate and betnovate combined with double base (my normal combo), hasn't worked. Instead I now have loads of lumps under the skin. Unsqueezable even in a very hot bath. I've been given timodine, but 3 days in, there is no improvement - possibly it's getting worse.

Any ideas what this could be? I've got another appt but it's not for a week.

Ds' eczema would regularly get infected and that's how it presented - big red lumps under the skin. Never ever went away without antibiotics.

How awful for you.

Amazing, thanks. I know what I'm asking for now.
