A realy big part of it is using a bland (no perfume or colour)mosituriser regularly twice a day. I only know Australian brand names, but a guick google search suggests Vanicream and Eucerin are popular ones in America

Steroid creams come in differing potencies, betametasone is a mid range one, stronger by a long way that hydrocortisone, but weaker than the super potent ones that are kept as a last resort.

Betametasone dipropionate is stronger than the valerate. Both are avaliable cheeply as generics.

In the shower or bath, use Cetaphil (or one of the store brand generics) instead of soap or shower gel - it cleans the skin without drying or irritating.

When the itch is bothersome, Benadryl (or the generic) 25-50mg can be very helpful, as can cold packs on inflamed areas.

Best of luck phillipa
