Answer

There are numerous treatment options for Wells Syndrome (eosinophilic cellulitis), including the use of topical corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, griseofulvin, H1 antihistamines, cyclosporine, dapsone, and systemic corticosteroids. [51]

Systemic corticosteroids are the most effective treatment, but they may lead to corticosteroid dependence.
