Hereditary eczema (often associated with asthma and hay fever) is a condition that can be controlled by medications but not cured with medications. Fortunately, eczema often goes away by itself as you grow older, but it is not because of the medicine you’ve had but just because your body rejects the eczema and heals it. A natural treatment for relief of itching consists of using skim milk and water compresses and then applying moisturizers with aloe. In addition, mentholated moisturizers like Sarna lotion also are very effective at relieving the itching.
