Skin hydration: Skin hydration is the single most important treatment in eczema. Using an ointment (like vaseline) multiuple times a day and wearing gloves over the vaseline at night will help. Avoidance of triggers like allergens, harsh soaps and chemicals, and cold weather/low humidity will also help. Lastly, application of steroid creams can help as well. See an allergist or dermatologist.
