The answer is no. Currently, there is not a vaccination available for those who have the skin condition eczema, BUT there are many treatments available in the form of a shot that can help to relieve many of the symptoms that occur with this condition.

The most common treatment used for severe cases of eczema is a shot that contains something called an antihistamine. Due to the fact that eczema is often caused by an allergic reaction to the skin, the use of an allergy medication in the form of a shot can help to clear up the patches on the skin.
 
Sometimes, the use of steroids is provided to the patient in the form of an injection or series of injections. This can help to reduce the amount of pain and swelling that is present. While these are two common injections provided to patients, there are other options available that you physician can discuss with you.

Does it make Sense to Vaccinate?

There is research being done in order to determine if a vaccine can be used to stop eczema from occurring. However, it is very hard to determine if someone will get eczema, so the use of a vaccine can be hard.

As mentioned, sometimes the condition is caused from one of the standard vaccinations provided to children, and using a vaccine to prevent the condition could in turn, cause the condition to occur.

Does Treatment Work for Everyone?

The treatments used in the form of a shot have proven to be very effective in treating the symptoms that occur with eczema.

Eczema is often a lifelong condition. Therefore, getting the proper treatment for the condition can help to greatly reduce the amount of flare-ups that do occur, and this can make living with the condition much easier. By discussing the options that are available to you with your doctor, you'll be able to determine if injections or another form of treatment is the best option for your needs.
