Well, eczema can never be cured completely. Managing the symptoms is the key to controlling the condition. As you’ve already tried several medications, I think it’s time to consult a dermatologist to figure out what’s going wrong. When topical corticosteroids and emollients fail, topical calcineurin inhibitors or systemic corticosteroids are usually prescribed in case the symptoms are adverse. These immunomodulator medicines suppress the immune system response and must be used cautiously for short periods, under a physician’s supervision. Your dermatologist can also recommend phototherapy (a treatment involving exposure to UV A/B waves) in case your dermatitis is moderate, and not severe enough to prescribe systemic corticosteroids.
