Less Medication Resulted in No Eczema

I have had a continuing case of eczema for well over 20 years, from very severe in the early years to moderate and livable during recent years. I was also being treated for atrial fibrillation with digoxin (0.25 mg daily) and flecainide. About six months ago I was hospitalized for dehydration. My cardiologist stopped digoxin entirely and reduced my flecainide by a third. Within one day my eczema disappeared entirely and has not returned.
