How to get rid of eczema on the nose and face?

Facial Seborrhea. Seborrheic dermatitis commonly affects the face and is characterized by redness and scaling. Typical areas are the eyebrows, frown lines, sides of the nose, smile lines, chin, and beard. Treatment consists of Hydrocortisone cream (1-2.5%) for flares.

Good Skin Hygiene. Apply fragrance-free moisturizer like Vanicream 1-2 times per day. For eczema flares apply prescription strength corticosteroid ointments to problem areas twice a day until clear (low dose for face). Aquaphor can be applied to face at night before bed and left on the face overnight to promote healing and prevent moisture loss. See Allergist or Dermatologist for more details. Read more...
