In brief: Creams/Ointments

For eczema flares, apply prescription strength corticosteroid ointments to problem areas twice a day until clear. Daily moisturization is important as well.
Other tips: Take quick showers (10-15min) in lukewarm water while avoiding harsh and drying cleansers. Pat away excess water and immediately apply fragrance-free moisturizer like Vanicream. Use at least twice a day. Avoidance of triggers.
