Yes: and make the showers short. Water is the enemy of eczema. Quick in and out showers with lukewarm water, a non-irritating soap ( I prefer dove sensitive skin , as it is cheap, easy to obtain and works well) and plenty of lubrication with aquaphor or lubriderm. I hope this helps! :) ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have moderate acne and using what my dermotalogist gave me however i wanted to know if there are any good home remedies like masks to make? Thanks
Stick with doc: I'm never sure why people spend hundreds of dollars on doctors and medicine and then want "a home remedy" besides. If there was such a thing, your dermatologist would have suggested you do it in addition to or in place of what they have recommended for you. Many of these treatments can take months for maximum results, and you just need to hang in there and stop thinking there's something better. ...Read more

Depends: Perioral dermatitis can be allergic, infectious, fungal, or just irritative. The treatment, therefore, depends on the cause. Cracked, dry lips (especially at the angles) can often be helped with vaseline alone. Allergic or irritative can usually be treated with a short course of steroid cream.
