I'll tell you what getting eczema in the groin area is the pits. I came across a blog which had some free information on how to help treat eczema.
Definitely contains some pretty cool stuff, worth a read

I have found that diet plays the largest role in eczema. I began eating more fish and the symptoms were greatly reduced. If you don't like fish, take the fish oil capsules with the Omega fatty acids. They appear to have an anti-inflammatory effect. I also apply an all natural itch cream called Stop Itch made by "derma e". You can find this in health food stores. It has chamomile, oats, calendula, etc to stop itching and peppermint oil to cool the area...not the slightest bit greasy and it's all natural. It's a bit pricey at around $20 but it goes a long way and it's the last product you'll buy.

Funny that you bring up that cream. I was going to buy it about a week ago but I didn't cause I wasn't so sure if it was going to work. I already tried the derma e itch relief lotion. It really didn't do anything for my eczema and that's why I was skeptical about buying the Stop Itch cream. But..maybe I'll just give it a try..

I have had severe exzema on my goin area for about two years now. I have tried so many treatments but nothing seems to work long term so I just use the steriod cream almost every day. As soon as i stop the cream the condition reoccurs. It is intensely itchy and consequently painful. I follow all the guidelines, wearing cotton, moisturising, non bio laundry powder. I am really almost at my wits end.
I had the same problem. Tried a lot of creams(both natural and pharmaceutical).Used steroid cream which gave me some really bad stretch marks. But after reading some reviews online, I used RAW UNFILTERED APPLE CIDER VINEGAR(organic). I mixed it with some drops of TEA TREE oil and some water. After about a 4 days, the eczema in my groin area went away. For some reason though, the eczema on my neck area has refused to go completely using the same treatment. Though I must admit that I tend to stop the treatment once I feel better. But then It comes back. Also I am supper super stressed. I work night job, go to school full-time and have a one yr old baby. So I hardly get enough sleep-which I think may be why the eczema in my neck area keeps coming back.

So many pathetic marketing trolls here! Sickening.

I too have had this problem for years. Recently I've discovered that most of my eczema is caused by an allergy to dust mite detritus. Using appropriate bedding, reducing dust in my bedroom and keeping away from dusty environments has helped a lot.

However I still get it in my groin sometimes. I think that changing my bedding more frequently helps (am about to get a proper matress cover which should help with this), but I'm still wondering why the eczema affects my groin particularly as it doesn't come into direct contact with the bedding or the assumed irritant.

Anywho, if you haven't already, get yourself a blood-test for dust might allergies. Also a book called "the eczema solution" offers some good advice.

Yeah same here. I'm allergic to dust/dust mite. Worse part about this all is that my room is in the basement...

Helen, your progress sounds like mine of twenty years ago. I am now suffering the consequences of twenty years of almost daily use of nystaform HC and trimovate creams. I've had to give up exercise and suffer next to no quality of life. It's a struggle just to get through some days.
If you can, wean yourself (with your doctors help?) off the steroid creams ASAP. I'm not saying you'll suffer the same fate but it's a possibility.

Crisco cooking oil! I know I know but it works!! As for the groin it needs not to be excessively dry or moistened for both will cause itching a cool towel will do wonders for the itching the key is to avoid the scratching the more u scratch the worse it gets this comes from experience oatmeal baths with powder milk also sooths the itching

I have suffered for years with really bad eczema. Luckily my grandmother who also had it really bad recommended a OTC product that has been around for over 30 years.

MAZON Cream has done wonders for relieving the itch and flaky skin.

I use to have to wash my bed sheets every day and wear dark clothing because my skin would flake really bad the minute I started scratching.

Unfortunately it's not that easy to come across anymore. I called the manufacturer Dannorth and was informed the cream would be available online in January 2012, http://www.mazon-online.com/ .

I was SOOO happy because MAZON cream has been the only thing to work for me.

My husband has psoriasis; he tried dozens of creams and salves, both prescription and over the counter brands. He asked me to order him more of this as he says it really helps the itching.

Hi Roger

Eczema in the groin can be very tough to get rid of. I had a problem with it myself, and two things helped me. I used dead sea salt soaks. I would put some in a small amount of bath water and then, sit in it for about 10 minutes each day. After I would gently dry the area and apply organic Extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil. Also wear pure cotton underwear and do not bathe in hot water since this dries out the skinand makes the problem worse.

Before you use any of the above products, however you should go to your doctor and let them have a look at the rash to determine if it is really eczema. Sometimes you can get a fungal infection in the groin area which itches quite a bit. In this case you will need a strong antifungal cream to treat that.

Go to the doctor and get clobetasol propionate cream. It is not too expensive and it shut my eczema right down. I had it on my hands and feet for years and thought nothing would ever help. But I haven't had to use the cream for years now, though if the eczema came back I would use it in a heartbeat. It's a sure remedy for me.

Hello,
I have this problem now on started about 2 weeks ago. My eczema is inflamed, itchy and embarrassing. I have told my family and they said theses things happen naturally but u should always moisturise you skin because dry skin is usually the problem and can produce eczema. I know the doctors is expansive but you should go as they have many creams and it's a good idea to show them so they know how survier it is.
The things that have helped me is, when i take a show to make sure it's not to hot Mabel make it Luke warm as the heat agrivates it and makes it sore and itchy after my shower I apply a small amount of non decherdent and non perfumed lotion. But my eczema is most itchy befor I go to bed.
All in all, I think u should go see you're doctor or pharmacist to ask who creams work well.
Good luck, and hope your eczema gets better :)
