Moisturize!: The cornerstone of treatment for atopic dermatitis, or eczema, is moisturizing the inflamed skin tissue. This cannot be stressed enough. Use a fragrance-free, dye-free moisturizer several times daily. For particularly inflamed, itchy, or red areas, use a steroid like hydrocortisone or a prescription from your doc. Be diligent to monitor and treat every day, and you will likely improve quickly!
