In brief: Good Skin Hygiene

Quick daily shower (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. For eczema flares, apply prescription strength corticosteroid ointments to problem areas twice a day until clear. Wet dressings (wet wraps) at night with Aquaphor and chlorine baths if more severe
