Best Drugs for Eczema Treatment

Monday, 28 Feb 2011 03:46 PM

Eczema is a skin disease that leads to rashes, redness, flaking, blisters, and bleeding. A number of eczema treatments are available, but steroid creams and antibiotics are preferred. These drugs for treating eczema help relieve dryness and itchiness of the skin.

Immunosuppressants are also recommended for the treatment of eczema. In addition to the eczema drugs recommended by doctors, natural remedies such as baking soda and colloidal oatmeal are useful in the treatment of eczema. This preparation may be used instead of soap. Another natural remedy may include tea-tree oil with coconut oil.

The top five drugs for the treatment of eczema are:

1. Benzocaine rectal ointment for itching and swelling
2. Prednisone oral tablet for inflammation of the skin
3. Betamethasone valerate topical foam for treatment of scaling, itching, and redness.
4. Fluticasone propionate topical lotion to treat swelling, itching, redness, and allergic reactions
5. Antibiotics such as ciclosporin, azathioprine, and methotrexate
