ESC offers itch and eczema management tips

When we think about itch, it is typically associated with atopic dermatitis (AD), commonly known as eczema. It can feel like thousands of bugs biting us at the same time, and the need to scratch can truly feel out of our control. In many ways, it can be hardest part of living with AD, yet sometimes, the most misunderstood.
