A common skin rash, eczema can result in dry or blistery skin and cause irritating itchiness and pain. While it’s tempting to scratch at itchy skin, doing so can cause further skin irritation and exacerbate symptoms. Instead, keep your skin moisturized and use soothing oatmeal bath products; by hydrating dried-out skin, these products can help to relieve the itching sensation. For severe itching, ask your dermatologist about using an antihistamine to find relief.
