"I take my grandson there for eczema treatment, that Dr really helped get his skin hey back on track."- C.M. / Facebook / Mar 07, 2017
"Over the last 8 years, I have seen more than 13 doctors/dermatologists and even a rheumatologist to no avail for my skin issues. Head to toe covered in rash and scales. Misery to a point my mental health was fading. I had multiple skin biopsies done, was usually diagnosed with eczema, and was always given steroid injections, pills, and creams. Nothing helped and over time, my skin got even worse. Was referred to SkinMD by my PCP end of last year and I’m so glad I gave them a chance. I had the blessing of being treated by Ace whom took ONE glance at my skin, told me it looked like psoriasis and not eczema, recommended Skyrizi injections, and I was on my way. Within TWO WEEKS of my first dose of injections, I was 100% clear and have been ever since. I can’t thank SkinMD and Ace enough for helping me, my body, and my mental health!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! PS. Referred a friend who was having (different) skin issues. He too saw SkinMD and is now 100% clear as well!!"- B.V. / Facebook / Oct 05, 2021
While the medical community is unsure of the specific cause of eczema, research shows that it can be triggered by many elements. Your genetics, environment, immune system issues, skin barrier defects, and common irritants that touch your skin (like soap or detergents) are among the most common explanations for eczema flare-ups. Genetics play a significant part because specific genes may cause you to have very sensitive skin. An individual with relatives who have asthma or allergies may have a greater chance of developing skin conditions like eczema.
This condition is frequently characterized by red, dry, or itchy skin in addition to persistent breakouts. Normally the skin will start to feel itchy before a rash shows up. Many patients, like you, encounter patches of skin that are constantly itchy, or cracked. These spots may appear anywhere on your body, but most eczema patients experience eczema on their face, neck, chest, legs, or hands. With kids, eczema spots can also show up on the inner creases of their elbows and knees.
When your eczema skin is scratched, dry spots and open sores with scabs can develop and may become infected. Serious symptoms may present as infection-filled blisters or a yellow-to-brown crust, which might be an indication of a fungal infection.
Eczema may be addressed with prescribed or over-the-counter drugs and lotions to help alleviate symptoms like itching and inflamed skin, such as:
- Hydrocortisone ointments and creams
- Antihistamines (like Benadryl)
- Immunomodulators (prescription drugs that stabilize the immune system, redness, and inflammation)
- Topical steroid creams for moderate-to-severe eczema
- Topical corticosteroids creams
- Ultraviolet light treatment or laser therapy
After an assessment of your eczema, your provider will prescribe medication and therapies to help tame the itching, redness, swelling, and more when it comes to your eczema.
