In brief: Weeds in the garden

Eczema is not curable, but it is controllable.
I tell my patients that it's like weeds in the garden: when it's there, you treat it, when it's not, you don't. If your "special" shampoo and cream control your eczema when it recurs, great. If not, ask your doctor for different ones, until you find the combination that works best for you.
