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.

In brief: Stasis

Although extensive work has been completed in the study of treatment of venous ulcers, no large, well-controlled trials examine the treatment of stasis dermatitis.
The overall mainstay of treatment has always been aimed at lessening the clinical impact of the underlying venous insufficiency, which is typically accomplished with compression therapy.
