In brief: Keep skin moist
Eczema is an allergic skin disease, caused by internal allergies.
It is related to asthma and hay fever, and is genetic. It can be seasonal and worsened by stress. It is important to keep the skin moist and to not scratch. You can buy over the counter Hydrocortisone cream, moisturizers like cerave or cetaphyl, and pills to stop itching, like Claritin (loratadine) or zyrtec. If it is very bad, see your md.
