Any ideas on what I can do. I use Epaderm on her but don't know about so close to the eyes. Are there specific creams for this? Thanks

I have it around my eyes too - very sore indeed at time. I have been using Diprobase for years, but it got extremely bad a few months ago and the doctor gave me Epaderm, which has helped a fair bit.

Thanks wotulookin at. Anyone know if there are products specific to the eye area for eczema?

Tried Epiderm and several others on DS who is 1. None worked.. his eczema is mainly on his face.

Steroid cream clears it up a treat and was prescribed specifically for his face (0.5% ointment) but not to be used too much.

The health visitor prescribed Neutrogena glycerol 40% cream last month and its the best one I have used so far.
