PROBLEM #3: Eczema is an inflammation of the skin that flares up because of cold, dry weather, allergies and stress.

TREAT IT: Use an over-the-counter cream. "Apply a hydrocortisone cream or a cream that contains an antihistamine to reduce the itching and inflammation," says Dr. Berson. If that doesn't help, you may need a prescription steroid cream. Take an antihistamine. Over-the-counter antihistamines can relieve symptoms. For severe cases, try an antihistamine with a sedative.

PREVENT IT: Moisturize. See "Dry, flaky skin," above, for helpful tips. Avoid overheating. Sweating can lead to eczema flare-ups. If you're too hot, adjust the temperature. Relieve stress. Find ways to relax―take a walk, do yoga or read a book.
