In brief: Managed

It is often a chronic condition, but may go into remission if triggers can be avoided.
For contact dermatitis identifying contact allergy with patch testing is important. Identificatuon of trigger foods with possible oral desentisation with oral desntization has been shown to lead to eczema free skin in about two thirds of individuals in 2 years.
