Hi there. Firstly by skin asthma i do belive you are referring to atopic dermatitis. You need to isolate what items you are allergic to & avoid them Dust allergies are common so ensure you dont have carpets et al around you. Pets are another issue. Different folk are allergic to different foods & one has to maintain a 'diet diary'. The reason i broach these issues is to try to emphasise that prevention is better than cure! Please continue your moisturizing routine. I may suggest you to additionally use an aloevera cream on your tummy in much the same way as you would use nutraderm. It has the added advantage of being a pigment lightening agent & is non-steroidal. Hope this helps.

Cheers & Good Luck!
