Moisturize daily: Keep water temp mild or just warm, moisturize often & if itching persists then a cortisone cream can help - low potency for the face & groin & stronger for the body, arms & legs.

Eczema: Eczema or dermatitis is easily irritated, itchy skin. Minimize hot bathing and soap, apply gentle moisturizer such as Lubriderm to control scratching. Cortisone may be necessary.
