Postpartum eczema can be due to the hormonal changes post-pregnancy which result in dry and itchy skin.
The main ways to treat eczema will be via topical steroids. Also, ensure that you use a good quality moisturizer. It should be gentle on the skin to avoid dryness which can exacerbate the eczema flare and itch.
You can also use antihistamines to control the itchiness and to avoid scratching.
