In brief: Eczema

Eczema is dryness of the skin and is very common in children.
The most important part of therapy is moisturizing the skin often. The more you moisturize the less need there is for treatment with topical steroids. But topical steroids are used frequently and can help keep the flare up of eczema in check. Talk with your doctor as to which steroid is right for your child or yourself.
