Many but disguraing: There are many treatments for the symptoms of eczema but unfortunately no cure. This makes eczema an extremely frustrating disease. Some treatments that work well and last longer than the typical treatments are narrow band uvb, biologics and some oral medicines like cyclosporin. Theses have to all be prescribed by a dermatologist. I wish i had better news for you.
