thanks for your query. please remember that there is no permanent remedy for eczema. It only means that the skin is weeping due to some insult or injury. the insult or injury may be anything from inside factors or outside factors. the inside factors include asthmatic and outside factors include soaps and detergents to name a few. You can undergo a patch test from your doctor which could bring out the culprit to certain extent. Once the culprit is identified you may try to avoid that culprit. This alone will bring permanent remedy in you. Identifying the culprit is also possible in some cases and not in all. An attempt may be made to that extent.
