Eczema=atopic: Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is in the same family of conditions as allergies and asthma. It can't be cured but usually can be controlled. It's best managed by using a sensitive skin cleanser, baths every other day, and using a sensitive skin lotion at least 3 times daily, even when the rash isn't there. Cortisone ointment helps, too. If doing this doesn't help enough, she should see her doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Atopic Dermatitis: Really there is no "cure" for atopic dermatitis, there is management. In my practice I recommend: decreased bathing (small baths every other day) using dove sensitive skin soap, liberal use of emollients (aveeno, aquaphor,cetaphil) and small amounts of topical steroids in the worst areas used sparingly until the outbreak resolves. Also, careful attention to products with fragrances and chemicals. ...Read more
Itching.: Atopic dermatitis is an itch that rashes (as opposed to a rash that itches) - it's the itching that comes first, and scratching it that causes the rash. The itchiest areas are typically crooks of arms, backs of knees, and sides of neck, although other areas can be involved. Most kids outgrow it, although an unfortunate minority do not. Treatment depends on location and severity. ...Read more

Once the skin barrier is broken, the skin can become infected by bacteria, especially staphylococcus aureus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
rash from scratchin: Most of the time, the main symptom is intensely itchy skin that causes the person to scratch.

May improve rash: Dupliumab is a monoclonal antibody that binds the alpha subunit of the IL-4 receptor modulating the IL-4 and Il-13 pathways.
