In brief: Moisturize!!!!
Moisturizing the skin often.
Use the topical steroids to help the skin heal and then continue moisturizing to prevent it from coming back. You cannot moisturize too much. Benedryl at night sometimes will help with the itching. Clip the finger nails often. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
