ECZEMA

Eczema, also know as atopic dermatitis, is a common, chronic skin condition which causes the skin to become red and itchy. Eczema is not life-threatening but can cause discomfort and itching. It usually affects areas of the skin that are prone to dryness, such as the face, scalp, ankles and wrists. Eczema most commonly affects children but can affect adults as well. Because the condition can be especially itchy and uncomfortable for small children, it is important to visit a dermatologist for treatment for the condition as soon as possible.  At Dermatology Solutions, we can help find you relief from your eczema condition.

What Causes Eczema?

Although there may not be a specific cause for eczema, research has shown that a combinations of genes and triggers are involved. Patients who struggle with eczema also tend to have an over reactive immune system and when the body comes in contact with a trigger it responds by producing inflammation. These triggers are what cause the skin to have a reaction and flare up, becoming itchy and uncomfortable. Some common triggers include, but are not limited to:

  • Soap/Bodywash
  • Lotions
  • Perfume/Cologne
  • Chemical Cleaners
  • Certain metals; such as, nickel
  • and more

Reducing Your Symptoms

The number one goal when treating eczema is to reduce your symptoms and calm the irritated areas as much as possible. Once the skin calms down you will feel less itchy. One of the most important things to remember if your suffer from eczema is to not scratch! Scratching can cause the skin to become more irritated and cause breakage which can lead to infections.

Practicing home care can help alleviate your symptoms and discomfort in addition to getting a professional diagnosis from a dermatologist so they can prescribe the best treatment for your specific needs. Some home care treatments include:

  • Moisturizing
  • Sensitive Skin Soaps & Body Wash
  • “Warm” Baths – Hot Temperatures can cause irritation
  • Cold Compress
  • Identifying & Avoiding Skin Irritants
