7 of the best eczema creams

The colder weather is starting to creep in, which means that skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis or rosacea can begin to worsen. Dry, bitter temperatures can lead to skin cracking, which can cause bleeding, dryness and itching, leading to more bleeding, dryness and itching as it gets hard to break the cycle.

We have selected our edit of the best eczema creams and lotions to soothe painful skin conditions, so you can get through autumn winter comfortably.

What is eczema?

Eczema is a general word for dermatitis, which looks at inflammation of the skin. It goes through flare-ups through periods of stress, fatigue and emotional upheaval, but can also be triggered by cold, dry weather.

Atopic dermatitis is often labelled as eczema, but is considered a longer-term and severe form it, which stays on the skin rather than flaring-up.

For any eczema-related concerns, you should always visit your doctor.

What are the symptoms of eczema?

  • Very dry & sensitive skin
  • Red, inflamed patches
  • Areas of swelling
