and now he has open sores, that weep, the size of 1 penny pieces on various parts of his body Been to G.P, specialists, given creams, bath oils nothing seems to work long term. Only bad in summer. Any advice please.....
He has my sympathies . I am also suffering at the moment.
I have found that it really helped to concentrate on plastering Aveeno on far more than often - like up to 10 times a day. Then once the skin was softened and less open wound i applied steroids twice to calm it down bit and now back to smothering with Aveeno, and i am seeing results. Its like the wound slowly peels off to uncover smooth skin again!
Mine gets worse in summer too.
I normally steer very clear of steroids as they kill my skin pigments - but sometimes they are the only way out!
my eldest used to suffer when he was little from infected excema.. I would clean out the wounds..brave little man and pack them with s.c then bandage for bed!!
He is 14 now and only gets it when its really warm.
