Hello Hernie Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com,
Eczema is a skin disorder, which is skin inflammation which is usually characterized by redness, itching, dry skin to cracks or a wound. Eczema is usually chronic and tends to recur. Some things that can cause eczema include exposure to irritants, a family history of allergies, dry skin, and stress factors.
Usually in eczema sufferers, after an examination by a doctor, the doctor will advise you to use a skin moisturizer or lotion to prevent dry skin, because dry skin itself can be the cause of eczema again. Usually doctors prescribe a special moisturizer, in order to avoid you from a moisturizer whose contents are not known which will actually trigger your eczema to appear again. Therefore, you should use a moisturizer or lotion recommended by your dermatologist. But you can also consult your dermatologist for other moisturizing options.
But apart from medication, there are a number of things you can do at home to help treat eczema:
Use allergy medication recommended by your doctor
Use a skin moisturizer to prevent dry skin
Compress or wet bandage with cold water the affected part of eczema
Avoid scratching the skin
Avoid those that may be irritants, for example, it is recommended to use soap that does not contain dyes and fragrances
Avoid substances that are proven to be allergens (allergens)
Using soft clothes, such as cotton, to avoid irritating your skin
Manage stress well
I hope this helps,
