I've suffered with eczema since I was born and over the past four years, it's really gotten to be unbearable. Is there anything I can do to bring my skin back to a healthy glow?

Eczema & skin glow
Dear Wrnrsister: You probably have a condition called atopic eczema, which usually starts in infancy. Longstanding cases can have thickened, dull-looking skin in some areas, in addition to the intense itching. Your dermatologist can suggest topical preparations such as steroids & "TCI's" , in addition to oral antihistamines plus other medicines, depending on the severity of the condition.
