Eczema
Hi My granddaughter was diagnosed with excema when she was a baby. Got prednisolone and fucidin along with epimax and it got better. Every now and then it however flares up...then we go the same way. She is cuurently experiencing a bad episode and has been taking cortsone tablets now for 7 days. It is getting better but I was wondering if the cortisone tablets is not bad for her if she uses it for too long. Can we stop for a few days and then continue. She started off with two a day for 3 days and is now taking 1 daily. She is 9 years old
