You want to try using emollients. These are creams and ointments that moisturize the skin and prevent it from drying out. http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/emollients/Pages/Introduction.aspx The best emollients for people with atopic dermatitis are thick creams (such as Eucerin, Cetaphil, and Nutraderm) or ointments (such as petroleum jelly, Aquaphor, and Vaseline), which contain little to no water. Your GP should be able to advise you further. You will probably have to try out a few first. There will be one that is best for your skin. There isn’t a “best cream” that suits everyone.
