Conventional Treatments for Eczema

  • Topical Corticosteroids: Topical corticosteroids are the first-line treatment for eczema in Singapore. These eczema creams help to reduce inflammation and alleviate itching, which in turn reduces the risk of skin irritations and broken skin. Topical corticosteroids come in various strengths, and the choice depends on the severity of the condition and the patient's age. Your doctor may prescribe a mild to moderate strength cream for mild eczema, while more severe cases may require a stronger formulation.
  • Oral Steroids: For severe cases of eczema or short-term relief during flare-ups, healthcare professionals may prescribe oral corticosteroids. These medications help to reduce inflammation and provide quick relief from symptoms. However, due to potential side effects, oral steroids are usually prescribed for short periods and should be used under close medical supervision.
  • Topical Calcineurin Inhibitors: These non-steroidal medications are an alternative to corticosteroids for individuals who may experience side effects or have not responded well to corticosteroid treatment. Topical calcineurin inhibitors, such as tacrolimus and pimecrolimus, work by suppressing the immune system to reduce inflammation and itching.
  • Oral Antihistamines: Oral antihistamines are often prescribed to control itching and help individuals with eczema sleep better at night. Although they do not treat the underlying inflammation, antihistamines can provide relief from the symptoms of eczema.
