My children and I use lots of thick moisturizer applied to problem areas throughout the day. This usually keeps it from getting worse. If I am having flareups, I do what my dermatologist recommended and rub a little but of Crisco shortening into my skin after a shower and patting the skin partly dry. It is gross, because it is greasy for a bit, but it works better than anything else I've ever tried.
Thanks for sharing. I never tried using Crisco shortening. I think I need to find a rather natural but thick moisturizer to use. The only reason why I prefer natural is to decrease possible allergic reaction or anything that might irritate it. Thanks Again Sheila!
My brother has Eczema and has to use either Eucerin or Vaseline religiously. Not sure if it works for everyone but it seems to work for him.

Usually we have vegetables from the garden in our freezer during the winter months. But this...year there is nothing in our freezer. Would it be ok to unplug it until we do have something to put in it?
