Dermatologists for Eczema in South Florida

Ease eczema flare-ups.

Eczema

Eczema is a group of skin conditions that causes the skin to become red, itchy and inflamed. It’s also the general term for “dermatitis.” Eczema may appear in the form of red, itchy patches on your neck, inner elbows, or behind your knees. However, it can appear on any part of your body.

It’s also very common. More than 30 million Americans have eczema, according to the National Eczema Association. It is most common in infants, many of whom outgrow it before adulthood. Adults can develop it, too, even if it’s not something they had as a child. Current research shows that it’s often developed as a result of genetics and environment. It is not contagious.

If you’re experiencing dry, sensitive skin that’s red or inflamed, consider seeing one of Clearlyderm’s dermatologists for eczema.

Symptoms of Eczema

There are several different types of eczema. Atopic dermatitis is one of the most severe and chronic.

Although the triggers, symptoms and treatment may differ slightly between types of eczema, most have similar symptoms.

Common eczema symptoms include:

  • Itchiness
  • Redness
  • Leathery skin

It’s possible to have more than one type of eczema at the same time. That’s why it’s important to see a Clearlyderm dermatologist for eczema. In order for your treatment to be effective, you have to know what you’re treating first.

Treatment Options for Eczema

Some of the treatment options for eczema symptoms include:

  • Over-the-counter remedies, such as gentle, non-soap cleansers, petroleum jelly, tar-based products and mineral oil. Use a good moisturizing cream for your skin.
  • Prescription medications from a board-certified dermatologist. Some examples include topical corticosteroids, topical calcineurin inhibitors (TCIs), and systemic oral drugs.
  • Phototherapy, which exposes the affected area to light under medical supervision.
  • Complementary and alternative therapies, including acupuncture, supplements, and stress-reduction techniques.

Our dermatologists for eczema can help you find the right plan to soothe your skin.
