In brief: Yes and no

Eczema, the symptom, can go away with treatment, but eczema, the disease, does not go away but is only controlled.

In brief: Sometimes

Eczema is a genetically-based skin condition, which has no known cure.
There are treatments, however, including prescription and over-the-counter creams, as well as allergy-based approaches. Most people enjoy at least some improvement from treatment, and in some people the eczema goes away, at least for some time.
