Avatar f tn I have eczema (almost positive) inside both of my rear-end cheeks. It appears to be "nummular eczema" because it is shaped like coins, red, very itchy, swollen and patchy.. What can I do? I am 55 yrs. of age and have never had it before.. I've been using hydrocortisone cream and cornstarch powder to keep it dry.. I only get temporary relief. It is the most annoying anomaly I have ever encountered.. Please reply.. Thank you.

Avatar n tn I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that.
