Since there is no known cure for some of these skin conditions, it is important to adopt certain lifestyle habits in order to prevent flare-ups as much as possible. In most people, this may mean using a body wash without perfumes and soap. Using washing products made purposely for hypersensitive and dry atopic skin will prevent further irritation and drying of the top layers of the skin. It is also important to avoid boiling water and to stay too close to heaters for the same reason.

The patient is also encouraged to avoid scratching the itchy skin as this may continue to damage the skin, cause breakages and spread the flare-up. Chronic scratching may cause the skin to thicken to a leathery texture. Instead of scratching, the areas can be gently rubbed with the skin of the fingers instead.

In babies with atopic eczema, anti-scratch mittens may be used to stop them from scratching and damaging the skin.
