I am 66 years old, male in good general health. I have eczema in both legs but only in the lower portion just above the feet. My father also had it at the same place. I have it for last 20 years. I apply vaseline after shower. Also I apply Fluocinonide .05 percent on alternate days plus mupirocin ointment usp 2 % on alternate days.
I went to dermatologist for checkup. She took some liquid from my eczema and tested it. Now she says I have some Staph infection. It is not serious. It is secondary infection. Primary problem is eczema.
She wants me to stop Fluocinonide and only apply mupirocin twice a day. Wants me to take anti biotics for 10 to 15 days. Does this make sense. Thank you.
