Rather than a specific condition, eczema is a group of diseases that have a similar appearance. Because of this, there are many different presentations of the condition. It can be red, scaly, rough patches or blisters containing clear fluid. It can also appear as thickened, elevated patches. Eczema is almost always very itchy. It is important to distinguish between the different kinds of eczema because effective treatments often differ.
The best way to determine if you have eczema and what variety of the condition you’re experiencing is to Request an Appointment with our dermatologists. We provide thorough appointments to review your medical concerns and cosmetic complaints, so we can create a treatment plan that allows you to enjoy healthy, beautiful, and smooth skin.
Treating eczema often requires both at-home care and in-office treatment from a skin specialist. This allows for a customized routine that best meets your expectations. We individualize recommendations based on severity and symptoms.
Every eczema patient is different; what works for one person may not work for another. Everyone has a different manifestation of symptoms, so our dermatologists will closely collaborate with you to develop a customized treatment plan. A central part of our treatment for eczema involves recommendations for gentle skin care, products to moisturize the skin and prevent moisture loss, and guidance on how to care for the skin during seasonal changes.
We also offer a new injectable medication called Dupixent. It is currently the only preventive medication on the market and produces amazing results, even for the most difficult cases.
Much of the care for eczema, however, can come down to a diligent at-home routine supported by our skin specialists and practiced by patients. Moisturization and avoiding skin irritation are essential to ensuring patients are comfortable and eczema flare-ups are minimized.
After an initial evaluation and diagnosis, our dermatologists can suggest any of the following:
While mild eczema can be soothed with creams and lotions, severe eczema may need to be controlled with prescription-strength steroids or oral steroids that can help to minimize flare-ups. Our skin care experts carefully recommend the methods that best alleviate itchiness and scaly, rough skin. Our goal is to help you feel more confident in your appearance. In addition to medications, we can recommend changes to your daily hygiene routine, such as avoiding harsh face and body scrubs, reducing the heat of showers, and tips to prevent scratching, which can exacerbate eczema lesions.
Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a troublesome and irritating condition that can make you feel less confident about the way you look and miserably itchy. At Bryn Mawr Dermatology, our experienced and friendly specialists offer effective therapies to soothe medical skin conditions and help you enjoy clear skin.
