Hello. Eczema does suck. I get it on my hands, and in my ear canals. I've found that watching my diet helps a lot. Cutting back on acidic foods, and using a ceramide lotion helps.

Thanks for joining the team- Welcome emoticon

I'm going to see another dermatologist next week. A relative told me this Dr prescribed him sulfasal-azine 500mg, which is generic for azulfidine 500mg. As I understand it this is a mild drug that is in the chemotherapy family of drugs. He does have to get blood tests quarterly to make sure it's not doing any harm, but he only takes 2/3 of the prescribed dose. I guess this can be taken longer term, usually without side effects, which is different than prednisone.

I don't suffer from it, but my husband does. His flare ups are awful to watch. The bloody knuckles, the rashes, the general misery. Prednisone is not a great solution. It takes the edge off, but it leaves him lethargic and exhausted. I would love to lead a more active family life, but he hates sweating, too.
My mother controls her arthritis with diet, I keep hoping we can find a solution like that for him. We are desperate.
