Thank you for visiting

It is possible that you have a nodular eczema. There are tests that can be done to confirm this and I suggest that you re-consult your doctor. This will enable him/her to make a proper diagnosis. In the interim, you can try Anthisan cream.

I have tried prescription medicine, over the counter but the rash keeps on coming back. I have been suffering with it now for at least the past 5 years.
