    It is best to use only specially developed hypoallergenic skin products for eczema - these are reaily available from pharmacies.  These products contain the safest preservatives and no fragrances or perfumes which can irritate the skin.
    Of course, even these products will not suit every person - so it is good to try a few different ones - ask your pharmacist if they have any samples available.
