Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes painful and inflamed flaky patches of skin; in most cases, these patches can be extremely itchy. While eczema is most common in young children, about three million adults suffer from the condition. It’s far more than a skin issue, as people with eczema can often feel embarrassed or self-conscious about eczema flare-ups in noticeable areas of the skin.
If you or your child suffers from eczema, you might have found yourself asking this all-important question: “Can eczema be healed?”
Is There a Cure for Eczema?
Unfortunately, a cure for eczema hasn’t been developed yet. That “yet” is key, though, as there’s plenty of research being performed to help identify what causes eczema, and what can be done to cure this chronic condition.
While there’s no cure for eczema, the truth is that the condition can be managed and “healed” to the point where your breakouts might become few and far between.
At Plymouth Meeting Dermatology, we offer a wide range of solutions for individuals who suffer from eczema symptoms. From laser treatments designed to eliminate itchy patches to light therapy for long-term clear skin, our solutions treat the cosmetic issues often associated with this chronic condition. Our goal is to ensure you feel more comfortable and confident in your skin again, as well as to lengthen the amount of time between breakouts.
