Eczema Can Be Controlled

September 12, 2017

We understand that millions of individuals deal with skin conditions on a day-to-day basis, and how those skin maladies can make them miserable if left untreated.

Many skin conditions are not necessarily medically dangerous, but they can really do a number on a person’s self-esteem. For this reason, individuals with skin conditions might want to speak with a dermatologist about treatment options for their particular issue.


Eczema is a general term for any type of dermatitis or itchy rash. There are numerous types of eczema, a few of which include:

  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Dyshidrotic eczema
  • Nummular eczema
  • Seborrheic dermatitis

Learn about each of these specific types of eczema.

An eczema-related rash may look quite severe, and the sufferer might experience skin peeling. Eczema often shows up on the face, hands, back of the knees, wrists, and feet. This condition can cause serious itching and skin irritation.


Eczema is an extremely irritating skin condition, but it is also manageable. There are a variety of treatments for eczema, including over-the-counter medications and lotions. Using such products helps some individuals maintain healthy skin and reduce the number of eczema-related flare-ups. Additionally, treating eczema with suitable products can keep eczema-related skin damage to a minimum.

Not sure what products to use to control your eczema? When in doubt, visit a dermatologist or other health care professional. If you experience severe eczema flare-ups, oral steroids may be needed to bring you relief. You must have oral steroids prescribed by a physician.


If you are not a fan of taking medications/using chemical-laden lotions, etc., there are still eczema treatment options for you. Here are just a few natural alternatives if you’re wondering how you can treat your eczema without medications:

  • Coconut oil
  • Aloe vera
  • Oatmeal
  • Olive leaf
  • Burdock
