Three months ago, I developed a mild rash on my trunk and abdomen. Initially, I thought I was having an allergic reaction to detergent, so I traded it out for a dye free, chemical free version. Still persisted. I traced the outbreak back to a week of extremely dry, cold weather. My primary care physician prescribed a steriod cream and told me to continue using eucerin cream/lotin. I continued this for two months and there was no improvement. I finally went to a dermatologist who diagosed the spots as eczema and he prescribed a strong steroid cream and more and more eucerin. Nothing changed. I gave up on this regimen and asked my local health store wellness coordinator for a solution. She recommended Borage Dry Skin Therapy. In three days, over 1/2 of the spots disappeared. Within one week, the eczema was completely gone. I continue to use this product daily to prevent a reoccurrence. I like to use the steamroom at the gym, which can exacerbate eczema. However, since using this product, I have had no reoccurrence. This lotion is excellent!!
