Effective Management of Eczema in Primary Care

Effective Management of Eczema in Primary Care

Eczema, also known medically as atopic dermatitis, is a prevalent skin condition that impacts millions of individuals across the UK. Characterised by itchy, red, and inflamed skin, eczema can significantly disrupt daily life. Understanding how to manage this condition effectively is crucial, and I, Dr. Thuva Amuthan, am delighted to share insights through an online learning module designed to enhance knowledge and treatment strategies within primary care.

Understanding Eczema

The module provides a comprehensive look at the causes and symptoms of eczema, offering foundational knowledge essential for identifying and managing flare-ups. Early recognition of eczema signs can lead to more effective management, reducing the chronic impact of this condition on daily life.

Tailored Treatment Strategies

Effective management of eczema involves a blend of lifestyle adjustments and medical treatments. The module explores various therapeutic options, including:

  • Moisturising Treatments: Highlighting the importance of skin hydration to alleviate dryness and irritation.
  • Prescription Medications: Detailing the use of topical steroids and other anti-inflammatory creams.
  • Trigger Management: Identifying and avoiding environmental or dietary factors that may exacerbate symptoms.

Practical Tips for Patients and Carers

The course offers practical advice for daily care routines to help manage or prevent flare-ups:

  • Regularly moisturise to maintain skin barrier function.
  • Use gentle skin care products to avoid irritation.
  • Implement strategies for itch relief and to prevent scratching.

Supporting Resources

For more detailed guidance, patients and healthcare providers can refer to resources such as the British Association of Dermatologists, which provides comprehensive patient information leaflets on managing atopic eczema.


Managing eczema effectively requires a comprehensive approach that combines medical treatments with lifestyle adjustments. Through this MIMS Learning module, I aim to equip healthcare providers with the essential knowledge to support their patients effectively.
