I have eczema and I am having desperate problems right now with the skin around my eyes. My skin is red and raw and puffy and I look like crap, but I can't stop rubbing/itching them. Is there anything that could help me? I have tried several different creams/moisturizers. The skin there is really thin and delicate.

I deal with eczema on my eyelids.

Once it's flaming, only prescription stuff will get mine under control. And, if I stop before it's completely disappeared, it comes back immediately.

Once treated fully, I must be vigilant to put heavy, fragrance-free moisturizer on the area within seconds of getting out of the shower to prevent recurrance.

So, you may ask, if doing this works, then why are you dealing with recurrences? Ans. Because when it's been awhile, I always get cocky - convincing myself that it's "gone" and stop the routine. I'm a slow learner.
