sigh not this again. You went to a dietitian/ herbalist not a homeopath. Those are fine. My eczema disappeared when I stopped eating crap.Go to a homeopath. I struggled during my teens and early twenties with Ezcema until I went to one when someone recommended him to me. He did a test with a snippet of my hair and told me what foods (which surprisingly included unprocessed foods so it's not just a matter of staying away from only processed foods) caused and aggravated my ezcema. He also told me I had an under active liver which didn't clean up the toxins in my body like it's supposed to and gave me herbal drops to use. I have been cured ever since. Find one who can tell you the actual food causing the problems and have your liver checked out.
Use it, don't use it.
The doctors are right about the long term uses. I was also on cortisones for years and it isn't good for you. This is my personal opinion, but I think it contributed to my eczema. Yes I got temporary relief, but over time I felt like it made my skin thinner than it was supposed to be and made it so sensitive that certain material of clothes made me feel like my clothes were filled with those tiny hairs on prickly pears. Although the itching would stop, the raw skin from scratching didn't heal either. It's relief now, but it's going to come back and bite you hard.
You need to stop using it and take my advice to srothman. Laugh here if you want to, but you have nothing to lose by going to see that homeopath. The only thing I have to say is I've only ever consulted one homeopath so I don't know if they all practice the same way or not.
You are advising the OP to go to a conman who's going to give him sugar pills to drink.
