Eczema is characterized as dry and itchy skin patches. Treatment includes keeping the skin well moisturized, avoiding allergic and irritant triggers, anti-inflammatory corticosteroid creams, and creams that help to restore and protect the skin barrier. More severe cases may require oral anti-histamine therapy, light therapy, and antibiotics should the skin become secondarily infected. Skin care includes short lukewarm showers, bland cleansers free of fragrances, as well as thick creams and ointments.
