In brief: Treatment of EoE
Typical treatment options include topical steroids, food elimination diets or a combination of both.
Talk to your doctors to determine the best treatment option for you.

In brief: Elimination diet +
Eliminating any food allergies + maintenance therapy with low dose Budesonide appears to be the most successful maintenance strategy.
Adding a proton pump inhibitor like Omeprazole may also help, but it is not clear.
