Expert Treatment for Eczema
Are you suffering from eczema?
It is estimated that over 30 million Americans have some form of eczema, a non-contagious skin disease that usually develops early in life. Many people try to treat eczema on their own by avoiding what they believe is causing it. The truth is, no one thing can control or eliminate eczema completely. That’s why it’s important to follow a treatment plan laid out for you by one of our qualified dermatologists.
What causes eczema?
There is no definitive known cause for eczema; researchers are still studying the disease, its symptoms and why and how it develops. Studies have found that eczema usually runs in the family and, while certain foods do not cause it, allergies to food can make it worse.
How will my eczema be treated?
Treatment plans for controlling eczema vary from person to person, but there are a number of options your dermatologist might recommend. Various topical therapies, such as topical steroids, calcineurin inhibitors and photodiesterase inhibitors could be prescribed to be applied to the skin to reduce inflammation, while an antibiotic could help heal an infection caused by a secondary bacterial infection. More aggressive approaches include phototherapy and systemic immunomodulatory agents.
