What is a good treatment for dyshidrosis or eczema?

I have horrible eczema.

Use a mild soap and warm, not hot, water to prevent dryness. Use a moisturizer with petroleum jelly after bathing to lock in moisture. Don't scratch the rash and make sure to wear loose fitting clothes.

If you are looking for an over-the-counter remedy, I've had good results with hydro-cortisone cream. Make sure that it is 1% hydro-cortisone - the weaker .05% version did not work for me. Prior to applying it, take a warm oatmeal bath: grind up some ordinary oatmeal in a blender until very powdery and sprinkle it into the water.

Put a handful of porridge oats in a piece of a old stocking. Knot end and put it into your bath. The milky liquid the porridge releases works wonders.

It is a non-contagious skin problem. It is a type of eczema of unknown cause that is characterized by a pruritic vesicular eruption on the fingers. Keeping the skin dry and cool is the most effective treatment for Dyshidrotic Eczema. Heat, sweating, and moisture can make symptoms worse.
