Abstract

The quest for acceptable and effective ways of managing eczema goes on. The mainstay of treatment is the regular application of topical preparations. This can be challenging patients, parents and children alike and it is well known that treatment concordance is hard to achieve. There is ongoing interest in non-pharmacological adjuncts to eczema care. Investigation of these approaches has been conducted using different research methods, each of which have a particular value. Review of three recently published papers illustrates how a systematic review, a randomised crossover trial and an exploratory qualitative study have contributed to knowledge generation around adjuncts to the treatment of eczema.
