Just depending upon the condition of the person a doctor advises him/her to undergo the specific treatment. The docs before suggesting the eczema treatment for the concerned patient should surely know some features regarding the patient. These factors are - type of eczema, pattern of eczema - whether it is mild or severe, heredity and many others factors.
Among the problems this one is the most important among all. As the patches itch and are warm what happens is that the person with eczema is bound to scratch the place . This suffering is too much for a child and for each individual who has this disease. Scratching is involuntary reaction as the skin gets dry and itches. Scratching aggravates the irritation of the skin and more rashes are formed.
The affected place gets worse after continuous scratching. Moisturizing the skin and treating the inflammation of the skin is the general way of eczema treatment. Only moisturizing the dry skin, you can refrain from having rashes. Thereby the itching and scratching get prevented, and possibly you can come out from this vicious cycle.
