Cause of eczema
Although there is no cure for eczema, there are numerous treatments available, with more on the way. In fact, there are an extraordinary number of innovative eczema treatments in development right now. Visit Treatments in Development for additional information.
Treatments for eczema vary depending on the kind and severity of the condition, and may involve lifestyle changes, over-the-counter (OTC) medications, or prescription medicine.
Eczema symptoms vary from person to person. Because not everyone will respond to a treatment in the same way, it’s great to learn about all of your options and talk to your doctor about finding a treatment plan that works for you or your child.
Managing eczema and its symptoms boils down to five fundamentals for most forms of eczema:
Recognize your personal triggers.
Make a habit of bathing and moisturising on a regular basis.
Use OTC and/or prescription drugs as directed on a regular basis.
Look for pus-filled lumps, discomfort, redness, or heat as indicators of a skin infection.
