Hey all!
I have moderate eczema, and I've used almost every free and paid solution to curing it.

I have it on my arms and if I scratch to much, I get it behind my legs and on my neck. Right now, I'm using something called Protopic, which is doctor prescribed. It helps moderate to severe Eczema. It has steroids in it, which helps to heal the rash quicker. However, I use Benadryl to prevent the urge of itchiness.

I'm asking which is better; doctor prescribed, or something like Cortizone? Both help me greatly, but I find that the Protopic gives me the smoothness.

i would stick with the prescription protopic. it was especially developed for eczema. when you run out or the refills or your eczema is at a place that you want you can use the cortisone cream.
