OK Kelly. We can continue after this if you'd like

Your description and the way this acts is typical of eczema and it may be that you just have a particularly stubborn kind there. You can try cortisone cream three times a day for a week but if that doesn't clear it up you'll need to see a doctor for prescription tactrolimus cream
