While eczema, atopic dermatitis cannot be cured, most cases can be controlled with proper treatment. The goals of treatment are to hydrate the skin, decrease skin damage, reduce inflammation, decrease the risk of infection, and alleviate the itchy rash.
Signs and Symptoms May be Treated with:
● Therapeutic (medicated) eczema skin creams to help relieve dry skin
● Cold compresses applied directly to the skin to help relieve the itch
● Corticosteroids to help reduce inflammation; topical tacrolimus and pimecrolimus also may be used to reduce inflammation
● Antibiotics to treat a bacterial infection
● Antihistamines to help reduce itching which helps the individual get a good night’s sleep
● Phototherapy can help relieve moderate to severe cases
Effective treatment often requires a multifaceted treatment plan that includes medication, proper skin care, trigger avoidance, and coping mechanisms. While doing all of this may seem bothersome, adhering to a treatment plan can help the individual feel better and stop the eczema/atopic dermatitis from getting worse.
While atopic dermatitis may resolve without treatment in children, this does not tend to occur in adults.
