(HealthDay News) -- Moisturizing is essential for anyone with hand eczema to help ease pain, redness, cracking and dryness.

The National Eczema Association suggests how to choose the right moisturizer:

  • Avoid moisturizers that contain a lot of water, as this can dry hands.

  • At night, apply petroleum jelly, and cover with cotton gloves while you sleep.
