In brief: Time
There are no "cures" for eczema, although eczema typically gets better as one gets older. The best treatments for eczema include gentle soaps or non-soap cleansers, good moisturizers (aquaphor), and topical steroid ointments/creams for flare-ups.

In brief: Protect
Avoid things that make you break out, soaps & wetness.
Wash your hands only when necessary. Wear gloves when needed. Wear clothes made of cotton. Bathe only with a small amount of mild unscented soap, such as dove. Keep the water temperature cool or warm, not hot. Use the medicine your doctor gave you. Use a plain moisturizer daily. Avoid scratching or rubbing the itchy area. Manage stress.
