No 'universal miracle cure'
Dr Capkova explains. “As atopic eczema is a disease based on genetic predisposition, current medicine cannot rid the eczema-prone patient of the disease completely. However, most symptoms ease or disappear on their own with age. There is no “universal miracle cure”. However, keeping the course of eczema “under control” is possible with well-informed parents and careful adherence to preventive and curative measures. This requires great patience, observing and eliminating individual triggers and worsening factors, as well as putting the atopic patient on a suitable diet. The results of proper skincare are visible only after several weeks or even months. Often several treatments and procedures have to be tried, but the parents, in proper cooperation with a paediatrician and a dermatologist, usually find the “right” cure for their child.”
