Hello,
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.
In some cases too much moisture is the problem however. Many people's eczema is caused by an allergy (all eczema is a sort of allergic reaction, I believe), and often by dust mite detritus. This is the cause of my eczema, for example.
Dust mites love damp / humid conditions, and the groin is a naturally moist area (skin is in contact with skin and sweat accumulates in folds of skin), so the more moisture you have in your groin area the worse the problem will be in such cases.
Personally I can't think of many reasons why eczema would be particularly bad in the groin other than:
1. topical irritation (build up of chemicals / shampoos / lubes in public hair, contact with irritating sanitary towels or underwear, or irritation caused by shaving etc.), or
2. allergic reaction to dust mite build up in this particularly moist area
If it doesn't sound like (1) is the cause of your problem, then perhaps you should investigate (2), and if dust mites affect you (simple blood test will determine this).

try to identify what makes it better or worse. do certain foods affect it? showering more or less frequently? stress? maybe you have used brprosalic so long now that it is ineffective, or even making it worse? if you scratch during the day then you can work on psychological approaches to stop that. if you do it at night, you can try anti histamine pills to reduce itching. you could read "the eczema solution". you could get a blood test to see if an allergy is making it worse, or a skin patch test, which puts different potential irritants n contact with your skin to see what causes your eczema. there are other options too. get scientific about finding how to control your problem, that way you can find how to reduce it.

I just came across a product that is making my skin feel great. I do not suffer from eczema but I do have a couple of friends that have children that do and use this product and the eczema is cleared up. It is all natural and not expensive. If you would like more informtion message me back.

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.
I have had eczema in my groin area for over two years now. I started using this cream and it REALLY works. Unfortunately, if I stop using it, the eczema returns...I'm now out of the cream and in a real bind. To make matters worse, I read online that this is a steroid cream and should not be continually used over two weeks.
Out of desperation, I used Aquaphor today, it seems to have soothed the itching. Hoping I can continue on this and will not have a problem. I've also been wondering about coconut oil and coincidentally I read in one of the replies that they have used it as well. Anyways, I'll keep posted if I anything works....

Honey please get over you embrassement and talk to your parents about your condition. They will be able to get you to a doctor who may be able to help you get better. YOu are so young to take on such a painful and distressing condition along..Please talk you your parents.

So much nonsense, garbage advice on here, marketing trolls, and nut jobs. Dead sea salt? Crisco oil? Really? How about sulfuric acid with comet and bleach, gasoline, and light it on fire, bet that would do it too.

Hi Danny, thanks for the Eurax recommendation. I've heard of it plenty but never used it myself.

Stress management also plays a huge part for me.
