What is Eczema?
Eczema is an inflammatory condition that causes rash-like skin growths to form on the surface of the skin. These growths are dry, red, and itchy, causing the people affected by them a great deal of pain and discomfort.
When Should I Seek out Treatment for my Eczema?
Because eczema is chronic, there is currently no long-term cure for these symptoms. However, most people who have this condition are able to manage their symptoms using a combination of topical medications and targeted treatments, Environmental factors like irritants, allergens, microbes, as well as fluctuations in temperature, stress, and hormone levels can cause eczema symptoms to worsen. Individual knowledge of the way a person’s case responds to certain environmental factors can also be helpful in limiting the frequency and severity of flare-ups.
While some people are able to manage their eczema symptoms on their own, this is usually only the case in instances of eczema that are particularly mild. Because it can be difficult for people to understand what products their individual case of eczema will respond best to, it’s usually better to seek out the guidance of an experienced dermatologist to help control symptoms sooner.
At Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center, our medical staff has an extensive amount of experience identifying each patient’s particularly type of eczema and the medications and treatment it will respond best to. This can help save patients from the discomfort of symptoms sooner than if they waited for each flare-up of symptoms to fade on its own.
