Hi, it depends on the cause. Avoiding the precipitants for example dust mite, lotions, soaps, detergent, certain clothing. Secondly if its eczema then moisterising the skin with an over the counter or prescribed emollient cream 4 times a day helps.

For flare ups and really itchy patches at sites such as behind the knees a mild steroid cream such as 0.05 % dermovate applied just on affected areas Is recommended for about 5 day. I hope his helps.

Whats the best detergent to use in Ireland for sensitive skin?

Well non bio one is preferable. Fabric softeners can be added to wash such as comfort. that helps with keeping clothes nice and soft to avoid friction.
