The objective of treatment is to prevent itching and minimize discomfort since there is no cure for eczema.
It is important to keep the skin moisturized since the condition tends to dry it out. Moisturization can assist with easing inflammation and keeping the skin hydrated.
This can assist as a preventative measure when it comes to itching, swelling, and redness. Some people do however have a reaction to hydrocortisone (a steroid), and are advised to consult a medical professional should this happen.
Corticosteroids may be prescribed to assist with easing inflammation and antibiotics in the event of infection in the affected areas. In addition, ultraviolet light in the way of phototherapy may also be helpful.
