No Cure for Eczema

There is no cure for eczema, but if handled properly, the effects can be minimized. Eczema is a persistent skin condition in which areas of skin flake, crack, and become itchy, red, and often painful. The condition is usually made worse because others are under the mistaken impression that it is contagious and so may avoid the sufferer and/or tell others to do so. Eczema is not contagious.

Keeping the area clean and heavily moisturized usually brings some amount of relief, and small affected areas can be bandaged, but there is no cure for eczema. You can learn more about the condition, as well as eczema treatments, by following the provided link.
