Systemic steroids? Antihistamines? A critical look at common treatment practices with Dr. Jonathan Silverberg

Oral and systemic steroids are used to treat eczema all the time, but are they safe and do they make sense for a long-term chronic disease? Antihistamines are the most commonly prescribed oral treatment for eczema, but do they actually address its symptoms?
