Eczema, Asthma, and Allergies

How many of you have the eczema, asthma and allergy trio? There was an article in the Boston Globe today regarding the elimination of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) as a propellant in asthma inhalers which may be of interest to you: Do the new asthma inhalers work as well as the old ones?  Have you tried the new inhalers yet?  Is it like going from regular Sudafed to Sudafed PE?  I suppose my family will not notice the elimination of CFC's since we have only used the nebulizer in the past and just recently received an inhaler for use at school.


With regard to eczema, we use hydrated petrolatum but I have heard good things about Vanicream.  I recall reading about it somewhere online as well. Apparently, it is easier to apply than hydrated petrolatum and feels more comfortable.  What do you use for a moisturizer for eczema, and are you satisfied with it?  Which moisturizing products have you tried and rejected?
