Steroids (usually the low-strength ones) are usually avoided for facial eczema except for very light potent steroid like. 1% hydrocortisone for short duration. First, you need to rule our cause of facial eczema; it sometimes can be due to internal causes like atopic dermatitis or sometimes can be due to use of cosmetic, herbal and other beauty products. So you will need a doctor’s consultation on the cause and severity of your conditions to decide on the right medicine. When choosing your eczema facial moisturizer, go for those with ceramides, omega-3, omega-6 and/or Licochalcone A. Color, fragrance or chemical-free products will further lower the risk of skin irritation. Importantly, you need to follow a healthy eczema skin care regimen alongside. Use mild cleansers and lukewarm water when washing your face. Avoid cosmetics if you can or use those with hydrating elements like shea butter, hyaluronic acid, etc. Never carry your make up to bed.
