I have had eczema in the past and this can be pretty miserable. It is like having a red, itchy rash over much of your body. The constant itching can drive you crazy. If I get this on my arms, I will usually wear long sleeves to cover it up. If this is during the summer time, this can really be frustrating.
The thing that helps clear up the eczema more than anything else I have tried is hydrocortisone cream. I have tried several different creams and lotions and this works the best.
It doesn't seem to matter what brand I use, as long as I am consistent with applying it. As soon as I put the cream on, I can feel it go to work and the itching subsides. If I keep applying it several times a day, the eczema will eventually go away.
