Lotions For Eczema Relief
First of all, do not buy a lotion with any fragrance ! It only agitates the skin and clogs the pores. You also don't want a product with oil in it, it will also clog the pores. One of the best lotions I have found is Surgeon's Secret sold buy QVC. It is made out of a pure form of bees wax.

Itch Relief For Eczema
One of the worst side effects of eczema is the itching. One thing that is great for relief of itching caused by eczema is oatmeal baths or making a paste out of oatmeal and water and put it on the eczema, let it dry and wash off. Another thing that works great is a hydracortisone cream, I've found this also helps with getting rid of the rash itself.

Soaps For Eczema Relief
Another thing that contributes to eczema is what type of soaps or body washes you use. A lot of body washes dry out your skin. One of the best soaps I've found is the white Dove bar soap. Johnson's bar soap is also good for being gentle on the skin, especially for baby's and children.
