What is Eczema?
Eczema represents a series of skin conditions that are brought on by several allergic reactions or sometimes from the human body's reaction to an immune system deficiency. The outcome can lead to redness of the skin, discoloration, and itchy spots very similar to dermatitis. In many cases, the redness itself is dermatitis. This may happen anywhere on your body, such as the hands, face, neck, or other areas. Atopic dermatitis is the most prevalent type of eczema and is normally the result of an allergic reaction. This condition generally starts in youth. At Dermatology Center of Dallas in Dallas, TX, our dermatologists will help you diagnose what is causing the outbreak so a true treatment plan can be created and completed.

What to Expect from Eczema Treatment
Specialists are not entirely sure what triggers eczema, but it's believed to be caused by numerous things, including immune system abnormalities, genetics, the environment, skin irritants, and skin barrier defects to name a few. Family genetics play a part because particular genes may cause you to have extremely sensitive skin. A patient with relatives who suffer from asthma or allergies is at a greater risk of developing eczema. Eczema may be treated with a variety of over-the-counter or prescribed drugs and lotions. Hydrocortisone ointments and creams can be used in addition to antihistamines, such as Benadryl, to help alleviate symptoms. Prescription drugs, like immunomodulators or steroid creams, can help if you have severe eczema. An oral or corticosteroid might also be prescribed. In extreme conditions, ultraviolet light treatment or laser treatment may also be used on the affected areas. When other alternatives have failed, immunosuppressants could be prescribed since these medications suppress the immune system.
