How Do You Treat Your Eczema?


There are a variety of treatments for eczema, including creams and ointments. But your doctor may also recommend moisturizing methods, like "soak and seal" and "wet wrapping." These therapies can help your topical medicines be more effective. 

Everyone's eczema is different, and there are many ways you can manage flare-ups. Talk to your doctor about therapies that may work best for you.
