Treatment is mainly based on the
cause and on the symptoms of the eczema. Therefore, contact
dermatitis can disappear by avoiding contact with the allergens in question accompanied with application of
cortisone or antihistamine creams. In case of atopic eczema, removal of environmental allergens as well as food
allergens can sometimes bring relief. Your dermatologist can also prescribe mild anti-itch lotions or topical
corticosteroids to soothe the lesions. In case of eczema caused by bacteria,
yeasts or viruses, cortisone or antihistamine creams associated with antibiotics can permanently cure both the
infection and the eczema. Psychological care and spa treatments are also used in the treatment of eczema.
If left untreated, complication of eczema can lead to permanent scars.
