Hi. Are you there?

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 18 days ago.

If you are having difficulties with eczema, there are some medications you can try.

The usual treatments for eczema are moisturizing lotions, steroid creams, and antihistamines.

  1. Topical emollients and lotions will help and a good choice is Aveeno.
  2. Steroid creams such as hydrocortisone which you can get over the counter. You should not use steroids for more than 7 days.
  3. Antihistamines such as loratadine or cetirizine which are also available over the counter.
  4. Do not apply Calamine lotion as sometimes it may aggravate the situation.

You can have a look at the following link which is quite useful:

And if these do not work, you need to contact your GP as we are not linked to NHS and are unable to contact them for you.
