    A bit late, but first, you should go and get an OTC Hydrocortisone cream.
    Treat as it says on the tube, and if the eczema does not vanish within a few days, make an apt with your GP.

    So Tengu, first the mouth, now the skin on stomach.
    Knees are still OK?

    :)

    Congratulations, you are infected with Tinnea spp. Athlete's foot fungus, or a related species. Use an athlete's foot cream from the chemist's shop.
    I get these blotches in April. Changing weather? Humidity goes up and skin is still uber dry from the winter?
    Cortisone won't help fungal infections. If it does, lucky you, you don't have a fungal infection.

    But the problem was on her stomach?
    Have I missed something?

    The NHS now promote first contacting a chemist with such issues. They can recommended an appropriate cream or a visit to your gp if it is necessary.

    Oh, they went away some weeks back.

    I think it was stress.

    All I have to worry about is making sure I have sun cream on now. My skin is very pale and burns at the mere thought of summer.
