The bad news is: there’s no cure for eczema.
The good news is: there are many treatments that can help manage symptoms.

What can trigger eczema?
Topical corticosteroids are medications that you apply directly on your skin to reduce redness, itchiness, and rash. While there are varying levels of topical corticosteroids, a low to medium potency corticosteroid can be used daily as a preventive treatment.
Corticosteroid - Medium to Low Potency
Betamethasone valerate 0.1%
In most cases, your eczema flares up and you need an acute treatment for immediate relief. It’s helpful to have these treatments on-hand. We offer several types of acute treatments for eczema - consult with your Alpha provider to determine the most effective treatment for you.
Corticosteroid - High and very high potency
