Depending on the type of the condition that’s been diagnosed and its severity, treatments for the condition include lifestyle changes, over-the-counter remedies, or prescribed medications. For instance, if a specific trigger can be identified such as a type of cleaner, avoiding direct contact with that cleaner can prevent irritations. Dr. Farnam can work with patients to identify triggers. Generally speaking, though, keeping the skin moisturized is a critical element to any treatment during outbreaks. Emollient moisturizing gels or creams may be used, and topical steroids may also be helpful to alleviate flare-ups.
