1. Moisturizers. Some people cannot tolerate any moisturizer during withdrawal – especially in certain stages of withdrawal, but here are the moisturizers many of our forum members like to use.

Gabriel first started exhibiting small patches of eczema at 10 months old. He was prescribed a “light” steroid cream by the doctor, but the eczema only became worse. The doctor then prescribed Mometasone and Elidel creams. His parents did exactly what they were instructed to do, and they watched Gabriel become more itchy and miserable before their eyes.
