Other Approaches to Eczema Treatment

Beyond topical and systemic treatment options, other approaches are varied. Some include moisturizing skin by bathing in bathwater. Mixing the bathwater with bleach, vinegar, salt, oatmeal, or baking soda can help with some symptoms. Another option is phototherapy, most commonly using ultraviolet B light, to relieve itching and inflammation. Finally, biologics are administered by self-injection under the skin to target parts of the immune system that cause inflammation.
