Answer

Topical immune modulators (tacrolimus and pimecrolimus) also reduce inflammation. [32] These are often initiated a few days after the topical steroid to decrease the risk of a burning sensation that may occur when applied to extremely irritated skin. Crisaborole, a topical agent approved for atopic dermatitis, may also be helpful, though data specifically for nummular eczema is lacking.
