The effects of the weather, including temperature and humidity, on eczema add to these immunological and non immunological factors. A day at the beach may have a positive effect on atopic dermatitis, while a dry, cold winter has the opposite effect. Wet wraps are beneficial because they replace the skin’s moisture loss. Corticosteroid creams, hydrotic creams and ointments, and occasional oral antibiotics are the main-stays of treatment. Avoiding allergens, local skin care, and treatment of the pruritis are the best approaches for treating atopic eczema.
