Thoughts: Eczema is a chronic skin condition that is treated/managed with the goal of maintaining a good skin barrier & minimizing breakdowns/infection. It is rarely cured although many kids grow out of most of the problems by school age. Food allergies aggravates it in 1/3 of patients. You can look into the food allergy issue with blood tests, but a review of your expectations with the doc is needed.
