“The key to eczema management is the regular use of emollients. Prescription creams should only be used for bad flare-ups.”
Eczema Creams & Ointments
Eczema (or dermatitis) is a very common skin problem, affecting 1 in 5 children and 1 in 12 adults in the UK. The condition causes inflammation and irritation, typically leading to dry, red and itchy skin.
There are many different types of eczema, the most common of which is atopic eczema (otherwise known as atopic dermatitis). While research has indicated that the condition is genetically determined, it is often environmental triggers that cause flare-ups.
