Keep Using the CreamMy aunt has eczema. You need to keep on using the cream. ANSWERSince I was 5 my hands & feet have cracked from Eczema sometimes deep enough to bleed. Eventually the cracks on my feet got so deep and so calloused, no amount of cream would ever take them completely away. With that being said there are ways to relieve the pain from the cracks, add moisture, get some relief & a little bit of healing.

For my feet, we have always coated them with something like Bag Balm (an udder cream used on cow's tets) you can find it at most stores now a days or on the internet, the one I use is in a square, green, metal tin with a cow on the side). After you've got them good & coated you need to cover them with something that will create a sauna-type environment, thus Saran wrap is very handy.....wrap it round & round till all of it is covered & there are no spaces, cracks or gaps for air to get in or the bag-balom to get out, secure all of this in place with some masking tape, then put some socks over top, sleep in this contraption, cut it off with scissors in the morning. After several nights of this you will notice a big improvement. For your hands you can simply wear cotton gloves or socks over the bag balm or go out and buy some plastic (like food service) gloves, & wear those under the cotton gloves or socks. If I just have a small crack on like the tip of my finger or a toe, I put a glob of Bag Balm on a band-aid & cover the crack right before going to bed. Recently I have replaced the Bag Balm with a prescription from my doctor, when I have painful, bleeding cracks I apply this and usually in one or two nights it's completely healed! You can contact me if you would like the name of that prescription.

How does ice wedging break ice?

Ice naturally makes cracks when it is frozen. Not large cracks, but cracks. Water seeps in through these cracks and freezes them. The crack expands due to the frozen water, or new ice. The cycle continues over and over again until the piece of ice finally breaks.

What cures eczema?

There isn't really a cure for eczema at all, but don't get your hopes down! First of all, DO NOT use lotion/ointments. Eczema is an internal thing, meaning it comes from the inside. These will make your eczema worse. Even if it stops the itch, it dries out your eczema even more and makes it crack and peel. Second, eczema is mainly caused by an allergy or it is just genetic. I have eczema all over my legs, but my mother also had eczema so I got it genetically. If it is caused by an allergy then you are in luck. If you go to a nutritionist they can give you blood tests and tell you what your allergy is that is causing you to have eczema. Third, a slow but simple way to get rid of your eczema is to use a product called Bag Balm. This is used on cow snouts/udders to get rid of dry skin. This is really the only ointment that works. Apply it to your eczema right before you go to bed. This is what I use. But do not stop using until your eczema is fully gone. Otherwise, your eczema will begin to itch terribly all over again and it will return even worse. You can find Bag Balm at a feed store. I do not own the rights to this product. Also, coconut oil for eczema has proven to be very effective. Source: MOST OF ALL, try your best not itch or scratch your eczema. Even I am guilty of it, but just try.
