    I've tried E45 but it doesn't help. Sudocrem is good makes itchiness go away but it's not for eczema and don't want to continue using it every day. Any help is much appreciated.

    Get a prescription from your doctor. They work better than most of the useless trash they sell you at supermarkets and chemists.

    Might be worth seeing your GP for some advice on managing it. I was given steroid cream to use when mine flares up which works well for me, but your GP will be better suited to know what to try with you and your eczema.
    You might also like to try things like not using soap products. Bubble baths and things can irritate eczema. You can also get more plain products (like E45 ones) for that kind of thing.

    As far as some general soothing/ moisturising creams go I've found cocoa butter good. You can also try various things like aqueous cream, E45 or really any moisturiser. I would try more plain and natural ones because artificial ingredients can be irritating.

    But yeah I think GP could be a good place to start.

    Btw I'm going to pop this thread into the Health section.

    Try Betnovate Cream prescribed by the doctor. Oilatum is another good alternative.Avoid using thick rich creams and opt for more hydrating creams which the skins absorbs easily without leaving any sticky residue. If your sky is dry and itchy - baby oil after a shower whilst the skin is still damp really helps! And then apply a cream little while after
