In brief: Lotions

Hypoallergenic lotions is essential; as much as possible.
Add an oral antihistamine to keep the itch-scratch cycle to a minimum. You might need topical steroids from your friendly allergist or dermatologist.

In brief: Good skin care

The condition is called eczema.
The most important care is using a good skin moisturizer daily after bath. Other skin care steps include using less harsh soaps like dove sensitive skin soap, free and clear detergents. Using a humidifier in winter when you have the heat on. A quick shower in lukewarm water rather than a prolonged hot shower is better to preserve the skin oils.
