Best Eczema Treatments
If you are referring to non-prescription products, I would recommend Aveeno. Specifically, the Advanced Care moisturizer and body wash can be quite good. As far as prescription products, recently I have had very good feedback with a product called Epiceram, a nice barrier repair agent for eczema-prone skin. Another one is Atopiclair. For the hands, Tetrix works very well. All of the products I have mentioned do not contain corticosteroids and are therefore safe for long-term use. If your condition does not respond to over-the-counter agents, please consult with your local board certified dermatologist for help.
