What is the role of moisturizers in dry skin conditions or for the management of eczema?

People having eczema or atopic dermatitis have a damaged skin barrier. This consequently makes the skin more sensitive to allergens and irritants. It also makes it more difficult for the skin to retain water, resulting in chronically dry, itchy skin that can aggravate or flare up eczema and other skin conditions.
One of the most crucial things that can be done to control eczema or atopic dermatitis is to maintain the moisture content of the skin. Lotions and moisturizers aid in preserving and repairing the skin barrier. They lock in the moisture and help in reducing dry skin and eczema flare-ups.
