I found this address on a website and thought a suggestion I have may help people struggling with hand eczema. I have used Alpha Keri bath oil for years. It totally relieves the burning and itching . . . soothes and takes the red out. It has been a lifesaver as I have had eczema since my early 20s. A dermatologist suggested the bath oil. My hands were in horrible shape the first time I had an appointment. He soaked my hands in this and immediately I thought I’d died and gone to Heaven! It may not work for everyone, but using it along with Cortaid has worked for me for years. I work with babies so my hands are wet all of the time. I’m not able to use the Alpha Keri creams for some reason. They don’t help me at all. I just wanted to suggest this as I am living proof that it works… I keep it with me wherever I go!
