Eczema, medically known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic inflammation of the skin, which often causes red, itchy dry skin, which can cause scarring over time. However, there are some treatments that can help to get rid of eczema scars, according to ILoveIndia.com and ScarsFix.com.

Vitamin E Oil and Aloe Vera Gel

Step 1

Combine even amounts of vitamin E oil and aloe vera gel in a small container with a tight-fitting top.

Step 2

Whisk the vitamin E oil and aloe vera gel together for 15 to 20 seconds, or until a moderately thin paste is formed.

Step 3

Apply a thin layer of the mixture to the scarred area of skin with your fingertips.

Step 4

Leave the mixture on your skin overnight. Avoid putting clothing or material on the area until the mixture has dried.
