Steroid induced eczema

My son is a year and a half and was diagnosed with eczema at 3 months. We live in Eagle River, AK (near Anchorage) and it is NOT a good place to live for an eczema sufferer! Despite what people think, Alaska is VERY dry- we live in an Arctic desert, it’s below freezing for 5 months out of the year and the pollen count is very high here during the summer months. I have a friend who couldn’t enlist in the military up here because his eczema was so bad. He moved to Colorado and it cleared up being in a more humid climate and was able to enlist about a year later. Just wanted to share since you were considering moving to Alaska!

The most common side effect of topical corticosteroid use is skin atrophy. All topical steroids can induce atrophy, but higher potency steroids, occlusion, thinner skin, and older patient age increase the risk. The face, the backs of the hands, and intertriginous areas are particularly susceptible. Resolution often occurs after discontinuing use of these agents, but it may take months. Concurrent use of topical tretinoin (Retin-A) % may reduce the incidence of atrophy from chronic steroid applications. 30 Other side effects from topical steroids include permanent dermal atrophy, telangiectasia, and striae.

Regardless of what topical agent you use, steroid or otherwise, “[f]irst and foremost, though, it is essential that the skin barrier [be] protected and maintained with the use of emollients,” meaning moisturizers, “ideally…once or twice” a day, especially right after showering, to lock in the moisture. Petroleum jelly, like Vaseline, is highly effective, but it’s kind of greasy and messy. What about something like coconut oil, which is less greasy? It was found to improve skin dryness, though no better than mineral oil, which is cheaper. Is mineral oil safe, though?
