Finding effective eczema treatments is a tricky business. Anyone who suffers from eczema can tell you how hard it is to find a product that will provide more than just temporary relief. When your dry, itchy skin keeps you up and scratching all night, it's time to take some action. For some eczema sufferers, this means turning to prescription creams or even steroids (yep, steroids) to control the pain.

Because steroids aren't the healthiest solution, and one that many of our readers say they'd like to avoid, we did some digging to find some alternatives for treating eczema. To do this, we went straight to the source — our eczema-stricken readers. They tell which products really make a difference in the way their skin looks and feels.

If you're lucky enough to not have eczema but are still looking for a solution to your dry skin, these products also get rave reviews from readers who don't have eczema — they're that good. Read on to see some of the best eczema creams and products.
