Can this condition be cured
Unfortunately there's no cure. Treatments can help relieve symptoms, and people need to try various treatments until they find the most effective. Even when the symptoms are under control, the flare-up can return sometime.
When infants and kids have eczema, probiotics can help. There's no evidence saying probiotics work for adults too. But I still want to recommend probiotics, they're no harm, and maybe useful. You know science has proved a lot of diseases are linked to bad gut circumstance, probiotics can improve symptoms of skin rash, allergy, depression, heart disease, even autism.
