Your GP will work with you to establish what might trigger the eczema flare-ups, although it may get better or worse for no obvious reason.
Once you know your triggers, you can try to avoid them.
Keep your nails short and clean to minimise damage to the skin from unintentional scratching.
Keep your skin covered with light clothing to reduce damage from habitual scratching.
If you have mild eczema, talk to a pharmacist for advice on emollients.
If you have moderate or severe eczema, talk to a GP. Talk to a pharmacist for advice on which emollient to use.
Use your emollient all the time, even if you're not experiencing symptoms.
Many people find it helpful to keep separate supplies of emollients at work or school, or a tub in the bathroom and one in a living area.
To apply the emollient: You should use an emollient at least twice a day if you can, or more often if you have very dry skin.
The NICE British National Formulary for Children (BNFc) site is only available to users in the UK, Crown Dependencies and British Overseas Territories.

During a flare-up, apply generous amounts of emollient more frequently, but remember to treat inflamed skin with a topical corticosteroid as emollients used on their own aren't enough to control it.
