Treatments for Asteatotic eczema

Treatment List for Asteatotic eczema

The list of treatments mentioned in various sources for Asteatotic eczema includes the following list. Always seek professional medical advice about any treatment or change in treatment plans.

  • Symptoms can be alleviated by moisturizing and steroid creams. Antibiotics may be needed if secondary infection develops
  • Steps for Managing Eczema:
  • Make lifestyle changes to avoid temperature, humidity extremes and other exacerbating factors
  • Bathe only once every 1-2 days - over-bathing can dry the skin.
  • Use bath oil to help moisturise skin e.g. Dermaveen, Hamilton's Alpha Ker or QV
  • Keep the nails short and wear a covering over the hands (gloves or socks) to avoid night-time scratching as the patient is often unaware that they are scratching
  • Using low-allergenic washing powders
  • Wear cotton clothing as other materials increase sweating and rubbing on the skin
  • Moisturise twice a day. It may take some experimentation to find a cream that doesn't irritate the skin. Avoid creams with mineral oils. Commonly used brands include: Alpha Keri, Cetaphil, QV, Dermaveen and Hamiltons
  • Oils such as olive oil (extra-virgin) may be used as a moisturizer
  • A topical cream called Pimecrolimus may be used to treat eczema - it is non-steroidal and doesn't cause thinning of the skin. Strong steroid-based topical creams may be needed for more resistant patches.
  • Very red dry skin may benefit from using QV Flare Up Bath Oil
  • Use topical antibacterial cream for infected eczema - oral antibiotics may be recommended in more severe cases.
  • Avoid environments that are excessively hot, cold or dry as they can exacerbate skin symptoms
  • Symptoms can be alleviated by moisturizing and steroid creams. Antibiotics may be needed if secondary infection develops

    • Use topical antibacterial cream for infected eczema - oral antibiotics may be recommended in more severe cases
    • Avoid environments that are excessively hot, cold or dry as they can exacerbate skin symptoms
