HC cream; moisturize
To treat mild or moderate eczema
1% cream (use a thin coat on the rash
, twice a day, for 5-10 days) is cheap, found at most stores and works well.
A daily moisturizing cream (cetaphil, cerave, eucerin, etc.) used 2-4 times a day helps to heal eczema & to prevent return of the rash. One can avoid creams with lanolin, aloe, or fragrances if sensitive to the ingredients. Avoid soaps.
