5 different doctors prescribed various steroid creams for what started as a simple itch, and then later what the next 4 doctors all said was eczema
. It is now painfully obvious that it was never eczema
, but the skin had been weakened by the original application of the cream, and was easily damaged by friction, leaving rough scab like patches, which is what they all convinced me was eczema. 6 different steroid creams, 5 different doctors, 3 years of hell so far. I would say it is permanent.
