Today, I've got the worst eczema I've had in 25 years. It's spread to the worst possible spot: right where my thighs touch when I walk. FML

Put on some chaps and walk like a cowboy.

I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.


Try some aloe gel.

You read my mind lol

Try Aloe or Baby Powder. If that fails, try wearing looser fitting bottom clothing with soft fabric for a bit.

You could also try Aquaphor. I have eczema on my elbow creases and my doctor prescribed that.

Speaking from experience, even though it's not eczema, I'd recommend using a sensitive skin deodorant to prevent further wetness and irritation until it gets better (that depends of course on how sensitive your skin and how severe your eczema is).

I know the feeling!! Best tip I can give you OP is try a honey-based cream, only thing that works for me and settles it down!!

I feel you, OP. I have eczema everywhere on my body (back, neck, arms, fingers, hands, and face). Sounds silly but what works really well for me is glad wrapping my skin after putting eczema cream on it. Give it a go! I saw improvements after the first night.

Well...I can imagine somewhere worse...but anyways, try cornstarch for some relief.
