Ease Your Itchy Skin With These 8 Best Eczema Treatments

Anyone who has eczema (street name: atopic dermatitis) knows it can be a total nightmare marked by unbearably itchy skin, inflammation, and the potential for infection. It's a condition where the skin can't protect itself from the environment as well as it should—and as a result, the outer skin layer loses hydration and develops microscopic cracks and inflammation, says Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research in the department of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.

With so many OTC eczema treatments on the market, finding the best one for your particular set of issues can be daunting. That's why we went to the experts to find out which ones they recommend to their patients again and again. Behold:

Eucerin Eczema Relief Flare-Up Treatment Creme

Over the counter, Eucerin makes some good quality eczema treatments, says Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, assistant clinical professor in the department of dermatology at George Washington University Medical Center. "They contain colloidal oatmeal to soothe itchy skin, ceramides to improve skin condition, and something called licochalcone to strengthen the skin's barrier," she says. Your itchy skin will thank you. (Here are six things your eczema may be trying to tell you.)

"Cortizone-10 is great for actively reducing inflammation and calming the dreaded itch very often associated with eczema," says Shereene Idriss, MD, cosmetic dermatologist at Union Square Dermatology Laser in New York. "If your case is mild, it can help break the scratch-itch cycle that perpetuates atopic dermatitis."

This cream contains 10 different intensive moisturizers that heal dry and cracked skin, and is the strongest OTC treatment you can score without a prescription. (If dry skin is your problem, try these five superfood remedies.)

Exederm Flare Control Cream

Exederm Flare Control Cream contains 1% hydrocortisone, which can reduce inflammation and itching, allowing your skin to (finally) heal. Because OTC steroid creams aren't as potent as prescription-strength, they're extremely unlikely to cause adverse side effects, so long as they're used as directed, according to the National Eczema Society. It's when a steroid cream—of any strength—is used too often or over an extended period of time that side effects can occur, such as thinning skin, increased hair growth of very fine hair, and perioral dermatitis (a skin rash around the mouth).

Because this particular eczema cream is the only paraben-free steroid treatment available OTC, Idriss often recommends it to her hypersensitive patients, or those with severely cracked eczema. "Patients suffering from eczema that develop dry and severe cracks are more prone to becoming sensitized to certain ingredients and develop allergies over time," she says. "That's why, in general, I try to recommend eczema treatments with simpler and gentler formulas." (Plus, this cream has a five-star seal of acceptance rating from the National Eczema Association.)

AmLactin Ultra Hydrating Body Cream

AmLactin is arguably the best OTC treatment for atopic dermatitis, says board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Kenneth Mark, MD. It's an alpha hydroxyl acid, which smooths out skin by removing the dead layer of skin cells, helping nix the flaky skin that patients with eczema suffer from. It's also a humectant, so it helps the skin retain and increase its moisture levels.

"This helps restore the skin's barrier function and minimizes transepidermal water loss, which can play a key role in the inflammation of eczema," he says. But take heart: When people first start using it, it can cause some minor irritation and redness.

For dry, itchy skin that just won't quit, Theraplex Emollient is where it's at, says Rhonda Klein, MD, board-certified dermatologist at Connecticut Dermatology Group. Unlike lotions, which are watery and evaporate, this emollient is specially formulated to treat chronic skin conditions, penetrating deep into the cracks of the skin to provide long lasting moisturization and protection.

"Moisturizers should be used regularly and liberally whenever the skin is dry (and always within a few minutes after bathing)," says Klein. "Apply at least daily or multiple times per day to protect the skin and maintain hydration." (Just avoid making these nine moisturizer mistakes!)

"When you have atopic dermatitis, you want to make sure that you're keeping your skin hydrated, as dry skin can trigger a flare-up," says Idriss. This eczema cream is free of chemical irritants commonly found in moisturizers (such as formaldehyde, lanolin, fragrance, and dyes), and is sure to soothe your itchy skin so you can resist the urge to scratch.

"Especially if you have atopic dermatitis, look for moisturizers that contain purified petrolatum," says Zeichner. "It forms a protective seal over the skin, allowing it to maintain hydration and repair itself."

Many of the newest eczema treatments are light lotions that are easy to spread, he says, such as Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Unscented Lotion, which carries the seal of the National Eczema Association.

Bleach baths may help lessen symptoms of chronic eczema by killing bacteria on the skin, and in turn, reducing itch, redness, and scaling. If properly diluted (the general recommendation is 1/2 a cup of household bleach per 40 gallons of warm water), bleach baths are safe—however, you may dry out your skin even more if you use too much bleach or take bleach baths too often, so it's best to talk to your doctor before giving the treatment a whirl. A more convenient (and less risky) option is CLn BodyWash, a special cleanser that contains bleach, ultimately taking the place of those pesky baths while still doing your skin a solid.
