What are some natural ways to treat eczema?

There are some Eastern methods for treating eczema. The most popular is heating oolong in water, letting it cool and then applying this solution to eczematous skin. I've seen some mild success with it, when coupled along with emollients.


The thought behind this ancient remedy is that the oolong tea is packed with antioxidants, and that can help with some of the inflammation noted within the skin of eczematous plaques.
