How do you get rid of eczema?
There is no known cure for Eczema. When you first notice an "itch" WASH the area immediately. Pat dry, and with a product such as Aveeno, or other unperfumed product you should moisturize. When you first notice the initial little itchy bumps, do not scratch them, apply a bit of the Temovate. Keep that area very dry. If it must get wet, as a hand, dry thoroughly immediately with a soft towel. Do not use heat. Keep the area aired and dry.

Use lotions and creams immediately after a bath. This helps moisturize skin by trapping natural oils within the skin's surface, serving as a self-hydrating agent. Furthermore, sufferers of eczema should avoid excessive sweating and overheating. New clothes should be washed in mild soap before wearing. Since stress also serves as a trigger, an individual who suffers from eczema would be well advised to reduce stress. Persons with severe flare-ups should seek the help of a dermatologist.

Topical steroids- such as mometesone. Wash the area less so that it doesn't get as dried out and figure out what causes it- stress, certain lotions, environmental irritants, etc.
