Moisturiser Decision Aid

There are many different moisturisers available to treat the symptoms of eczema. However, the main types are lotions, creams, gels and ointments.

Our Moisturiser Decision Aid (PDF, 1,262kB) is designed to be used by parents, older children with eczema or health care professionals, as ones to try.

It was developed by researchers in collaboration with stakeholders, and is based on the finding from the Best Emollients for Eczema trial, which evaluated the effectiveness and acceptability of lotions, creams, gels and ointments that are commonly prescribed on the NHS.
