I'm 38yrs old and suffered full body eczema for most my life however for the last 5 yrs I have been totally clear of it . UNTIL now :-( Eczema has taken over my face all but my forehead ! even my eyelids are affected .. I'm desperate as I leave in 2 weeks on holiday this is the WORST timing ! my face looks like I'm a 100+ yr old woman :-( With prednisone what doses did you all receive daily and for how long?( looking for very short term ) I've been on it before for asthma and eczema but it was several yrs ago . NEED help please share your experiences . my regular eczema creams /wash isn't working and it's getting worse.
