Steroid creams for eczema treatment

Topical creams containing corticosteroids are a common treatment for eczema


Eczema is typically treated with a combination of emollients and steroid creams. Emollients are moisturizing lotions that help prevent skin from drying out. Steroid creams contain corticosteroids. Ointments, lotions and shampoos containing corticosteroids are also available. Corticosteroids help reduce the inflammation associated with eczema and are available in a range of different strengths. The strongest medication is not necessarily the best one for you, as stronger medications can produce more significant side effects. Your doctor will help you to find the most appropriate treatment for the severity of your eczema.

What if my eczema cream doesn’t work?

If you do not experience improvement after 3-4 weeks of treatment with your eczema cream, it may not be strong enough. You should then return to your doctor, as they may be able to prescribe a stronger alternative.
