Multiple modalities!: Eczema is treated in a few ways. The mainstay of treatment is usually either topical steroid creams or immunomodulaters. Keep in mind though that eczema is a chronic, recurring condition so there truly isnt a cure, but there are methods to keep it under control. Using mild soaps like dove, and thick moisturizing creams daily, like eucerin or cetaphil is recommended. Antihist used for itch control.
