Eczema Treatment

People often try over-the-counter treatments to relieve the symptoms of eczema with little to no relief. Even some prescription medications promise relief, but don’t do what they say. While a rash here and there is normal in children and adults, eczema is a nuisance that is much worse than your average rash.

What is Eczema?

Eczema is a broad term used for a variety of skin conditions where the skin appears red, irritated and sometimes has fluid-filled bumps. Eczema is often caused by atopic dermatitis and can occur in infants, young children and adults.

Is There an Eczema Treatment?

Eczema treatments are available, but first you must be diagnosed by a physician or dermatologist. An Eczema specialist will get your medical history, ask about histories of rashes or allergies, etc. There is no test to diagnose eczema; therefore, your medical history is what will help them determine if you have eczema.

Good Skin Care is Important!

Eczema removal starts with good skin care practices. For those suffering from a mild case of eczema sometimes all it takes is modifying their skin care routine or making a few lifestyle changes. Those who suffer from more severe cases, however, need to seek out treatment from an eczema specialist.

Medications and treatments are available to help remove the signs and irritations of eczema. Some of these treatments can include:

  • Hydrocortisone creams
  • Antihistamines
  • Corticosteroids
  • Ultraviolet light therapies
  • Immunosupressants
  • Immunomodulators
  • Prescription-strength moisturizers and creams

Eczema removal requires your complete dedication to your eczema treatment. Our staff will give you the necessary lifestyle changes and medications, but you must follow them to keep the rash from coming back. By following your prescribed treatment you can reduce, if not eliminate, the irritation of eczema altogether.
