What is the treatment for eczema?
The treatment of acute eczema requires
repeated cycles of application of dilute aqueous solutions followed by
evaporation. This is most often conveniently performed by placing the affected
body part in front of a fan after the compress. Once the acute weeping has
diminished, then topical steroids (such as triamcinolone cream) application can
be an effective treatment. In extensive disease, systemic steroids may need to
be utilized either orally or by an injection (shot).
