ECZEMA

Also known as atopic dermatitis, Eczema is one of the most common skin disorders that causes rashes, red, itchy skin.

What are the symptoms of Eczema?

Eczema or Atopic dermatitis signs and symptoms vary from person to person. Some of the most common symptoms are:

  • Dry skin
  • Itching, which may become severe at night
  • Red to brownish-gray patches, especially on the hands, feet, ankles, wrists, neck, upper chest, eyelids, inside the bend of the elbows and knees, and in infants, the face and scalp.
  • Small, raised bumps, which may leak fluid and crust over when scratched
  • Thickened, cracked, scaly skin
  • Raw, sensitive, swollen skin from scratching 

What are the best treatments for Eczma?

Creams and Ointments

Our doctors typically prescribe a corticosteroid cream or ointment depending on the severity of your eczema to help control itching and help repair your skin. 

Oral and Cream Antibiotics

For severe cases and flare ups our board certified dermatologists may prescribe oral corticosteroids in addition to antibiotic cream to help jumpstart the healing process in cases where the skin may have open sores or cracks.

Ultralight therapy

When patients experience stubborn recurring flare ups, Our Board Certified Dermatologists may recommend the use of controlled exposure to the ultraviolet light both organically and artificially in our office. 

Biologics 

Adults with moderate to severe Atopic Dermatitis for whom topical treatments have not worked or are not advised are usually prescribed Biologics as a last resort.
