Eczema: That's the actual diagnosis, right? There's no reason it cannot be managed. Often it responds to something as simple as over-the-counter hydrocortisone under saran wrap. There are a variety of prescription Rx's; I'd ask about tacrolimus cream. If access to health care is a problem, phone a nearby medical school. Best wishes. ...Read more

Steroids+moisturizer: The best treatment is steroid cream (hydrocortisone) and moisturizers; you can use over the counter hydrocortisone, but your physician can prescribe a stronger one, which will work better.

I have had a cut and put a plaster over it for 4 days when I took it of I had bad red bumps that itchy how to get rid of them they on my knee?

It sounds like: your skin had an allergic reaction to something in the plaster (bandaid?) or something you put on the cut (antibiotic ointment?).
