“I wonder if I got the Eczema?”
That’s a reasonable question seeing as how that “red spot” is now the whole left side of your arm. What are you going to do about it? You’ve heard that you can use some kind of cream, but which Eczema Cream is the best?
Eczema Cream: What is Eczema?
Eczema is an inflammation of the epidermis (top layer of skin.) There is no known cause or cure however, several theories have been advanced as to why it occurs.
- Genetics – If your parents have Eczema, then it is very possible you could have it.
- Immune System Malfunction
- Hyper-hygienic Response – You clean yourself so much that you kill the good bacteria that aid in cleaning your skin.
- Hypo-Hygienic Response – You don’t clean your skin enough.
- Allergic Reaction
- Coeliac Disease– There is a strong correlation between patients who have Coeliac Disease and Eczema.
Eczema Cream: How do I Know It’s Even Eczema?
You don’t, and won’t, without consulting a doctor. That’s why it’s so important to seek medical advice before you try even the first Eczema Cream on your skin. You can know it’s time to seek help, if you notice continued and/or growing skin:
- Bleeding (usually due to excessive scratching)
If any or all of these symptoms become persistent, call the doctor.
Eczema Cream: Which Are the Most Common?
The first line of defense against Eczema and indeed all skin conditions is good hygiene, which most experts agree involves cleaning, and then moisturizing. Keeping the skin hydrated is paramount in fighting Eczema, and a good moisturizer is the first “Eczema Cream” you should be using. With proper use, it may be the only cream you need.
- Johnson and Johnson Baby Lotion
- Crisco (I know, right? That’s why you gotta ask the doctor!)
These are some of the more popular brand name moisturizers. Used:
- Twice daily
- Less than 3 minutes after drying off from your bath (air drying Eczema is bad)
Eczema Cream can prevent many of the symptoms from occurring or worsening. There is no known cause or cure for Eczema, so prevention of the above symptoms is your only recourse after the condition appears. A good moisturizer (low water make-up) is sometimes the best answer. Petroleum Jelly is not a good moisturizer for Eczema, it doesn’t add hydration.
Bathing with an expensive, non-prescription or non-recommended creams is a no-no. It can actually hinder the cessation of your condition.
These creams come in:
- Solution (for the scalp)
Form. They are very good at relieving the symptoms of Eczema. However, they themselves have adverse side effects if not used properly, and the shortest amount of time possible.
- Thinning of the Skin
- Change in Skin Pigmentation
- HPA Axis Suppression (a complicated, but important interaction between the hypothalamus and the endocrine system.)
- Carcinogenic Concerns
So Topical Steroids are good for Eczema, but need to be used sparingly, and only when there is an outbreak of symptoms.
New in the field of Eczema treatment, Calcineurins are designed to replace Topical Steroids, as they don’t have the side effects that some of the steroids do. There are issues with long term use however, and the FDA has some safety concerns. Speak with your doctor at length if this is one of the Eczema Cream treatments they recommend.
Are two of the most used Calcineurins.
The last line of Eczema Cream defenses are the Topical Antibiotics. These are last line, because there is usually no need, as the other topical treatments will work most of the time. There are occasions however, where Eczema progresses, usually due to non-treatment of symptoms, to the point of infection. This usually results in a Staph Infection which can be very serious if not aggressively treated.
Which Eczema Cream is the Best?
That answer, like so many is relative; relative to the needs of each patient. Some may be able to control their Eczema by:
- Good hygiene
They have no need for any other kind of Eczema Cream. Others may need to address the problem with Steroids and or Antibiotics, depending on the severity. Whatever the case, talk with your doctor and find out your best Eczema Cream.

a. Raw eggs
b. Topical Steroidcs
c. Simple, unscented moisturizers
d. Topical Antibiotics
True or False: You can use Topical Steroids all you want.
a. Trending on Twitter
