Moisturize the eczema when the skin is moist. The moisturizers help the body retain the existing moisture in the skin. Start with a gentle blotting of your skin. Next, apply the moisturizer. Do your best to perform these tasks within three minutes of a shower or bath.
Make sure the air is not too dry in your home, especially in the rooms you spend most of your time in. Dry air can cause break outs of eczema. If it is the heating season or you have particularly dry air in your home, you can fix that by putting a humidifier in those rooms.
