While the cause of eczema, which makes the skin itchy, is unknown and there is no cure, there are ways to lessen its discomfort.

Step 1: Apply topical steroid creams
Apply topical steroid creams, which help reduce inflammation, after a bath to seal in moisture.

Topical steroids can cause acne and thinning of the skin.

Step 2: Apply cold compresses and take oral antihistamines
Apply cold compresses to affected areas and take oral antihistamines to help alleviate itching.

Step 3: Use coal-tar-extract products
Use soaps and shampoos that contain coal-tar extracts, which help reduce itching, rashes, and inflammation.

Use mild laundry detergents and unscented fabric softener and bath products to avoid triggering eczema.

Step 4: Take oral corticosteroids and antibiotics
Ask your doctor to prescribe oral corticosteroids, which help reduce inflammation, and antibiotics, to treat infected areas caused by excessive scratching.
