Aims of treatment

Cure is an unrealistic option for the majority of sufferers, the causes of atopic eczema that are amenable to manipulation being poorly understood, and because the effect of conventional treatment on the long-term natural history of the disease is simply not known. Treatment is thus aimed at relieving troublesome symptoms such as itch and soreness and its associated sleep loss, in order to improve the person's quality of life. Improvement in skin appearance may also be important, as is self-esteem, social confidence and the ability to participate freely in recreational activities such as swimming.
