Is anyone else being treated for hand ezcema? I was dx probably two years ago and am still having problems. After steroids, creams and ointments my doc started giving me the light treatments five days a week and then gradually decreasing the days but increasing the time until I was at 10 minutes. He thought it would keep the ezcema in remission for a long time. It didn't. I've had two steroid shots in 2 1/2 month and am now using the ointment Protopic. The ointment seems to help as the ezcema clears up for a month and then I start to itch again. I am very careful to keep my hands cool and use gloves when working outside. But I'm frustrated because I thought I could keep this at bay for more then a month at a time.
Has anyone been symptom free for more then a month? What other treatments are there to help?
