The best way is to control the underlying eczema, and the dark spots will eventually fade. See a dermatologist to make sure that your skin condition is nothing more serious. ...Read more

Oil Vs. Water: These are similar in many respects but contain different amounts of oil or petrolatum and water. Ointments have higher oil content as you would expect (75% or more), creams about 50/50 oil to water, and lotions even less oils. The amounts do vary with the manufacturer.
