Atopic Aczema

I'm taking treatment for Atopic Aczema, I'm taking Medrol 8mg tablets everyday from past 4 months, but still my skin is not getting better, the rashes, itching continues and if I skip a day taking a tablet, the itching increases and it starts to bleed. Please help if there is any other alternative which is affordable.

Hi You seem to be taking oral steroid tablets. please contact a dermatologist who can help you find a non steroid tablet to substitute. Also use a good cream based moisturiser often over all the affected areas. Avoid long hot shower and harsh soaps etc. please try wet wraps with moisturiser. http://www.nationaljewish.org/healthinfo/conditions/allergy/types/eczema/treatment/wet-wrap-therapy/
