Eczema typically a waxing/waning condition of the skin.
.Symptom severity often correlate with weather changes, i.e..Winter weather usually makes eczema worse. Sun and warmer weather tend to alleviate eczema. Topical cream/ointment often are helpful. Currently there is no cure!

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.
