    Hi Abdu,

    Eczema is not "curable" as such, however there are many treatments and products available to reduce and relieve its symptoms.

    If you can find out the trigger of your eczema, eg something in your diet, then you can greatly reduce symptoms by cutting these out.

    Kind regards,

    Mistrys

      I have eczema on my ankle and groin areas. Will it spread to other places?

      What control has to be done on diet?

      Some people find that their eczema is triggered or worsened by eating certain foods, such as dairy or gluten products. It could be worth keeping a diary, so you can identify what is triggering a flare up, and cut down on these foods to see if it helps.

      Yes, steroid creams such as hydrocortisone can help to relieve the itching, however these are best used in conjunction with a good moisturiser, and should be used with precaution on delicate areas

      You are answering the questions with clear solutions. Are you a doctor?

      How about smoking. I am smoking 4 to 5 cigarettes in a day.
