    (soft music) (clock ticking) – [Narrator] How do I treat dry skin? There are a number of simple steps you can use to help prevent and treat dry skin with common over the counter products, and providing moisture is the key.

    Is Eczema Contagious?

    Is Eczema Contagious? Hi. I’m Sky. And I have Eczema, sometimes called Atopic Dermatitis. Mostly it shows up as patches of dry, itchy and sometimes flaky skin on my knees, elbows and scalp, and sometimes behind my left ear. I always thought my Eczema wasn’t Contagious.
