You could try something like epiderm- it does have any steroid in it its an emollient- you need something very greasy- so my dermatologist tells me- they said i have lip lickers eczema on my top lip but im 99% certain that i never lick my top lip! Also see if you can get hydrocirtisone- its one of the weakest ones- i have really bad eczema all over me and the derm and gp have told me that the only thing dermovate should ever be used for is very bad spots on your hands feet etc but never on your face. Go for oitnment based things rather than cream- for some reason they are better.
*I have suffered from small patches of dermatitis for several years now and the only treatment has been hydrocortisone creams, containing steroids. However, I have recently discovered Natrabalm and have been using the trial size bottle, with very encouraging results. The patches of dermatitis are gradually disappearing and I have consequently ordered full size bottles. I am convinced that this product will result in the total disappearance of the dermatitis and am particularly delighted that the ingredients of the cream are totally plant based and therefore have no inherent complications. Lisa is extremely helpful. knowledgeable and friendly and the product is sent first class. I can really highly recommend both Natrabalm and the company.
Used a trial sized version, applying to specific locations for a period of two weeks and saw marked improvement to those locations even in the midst of flare ups to adjacent areas. There was minimal stinging in one of the 4 locations upon the first few applications. Now using the full-sized version to apply to additional areas. I have used a topical steroid only a handful of times and my atopic dermatitis is classified as moderate. I’ve had eczema my whole life but it only resurfaced to become troublesome in the last year. My allergist (working with my dermatoligist) said he has some patients the medication clears up completely and others it does nothing for, thus the initial spot trial. There could be additional factors involved, but for me at least, there has been a positive response to the Eucrisa and no negative (other than the co-pay insurance cost).
