Eczema Treatment

What is Eczema?

Eczema, also called dermatitis, is a dry skin autoimmune condition. It is a prevalent skin condition that can affect infants, children, and even adults, regardless of gender. The condition can be classified under exogenous or from environmental or external factors (like allergic contact dermatitis), and endogenous or from internal factors (like atopic dermatitis).

Eczema can be a troublesome and frustrating skin condition, regardless of whether it happens every day or a few times every year. It is recommended to consult an expert dermatologist and take an effective course of action to control the rash and itch. The treatment of eczema has four goals, to heal the skin, control the itch, prevent flares, and prevent infections. Deciding the correct treatment also depends upon the individual’s medical history, age, and symptoms. Generally, a combination of remedies is required to achieve the best results, and regular skincare is also required to keep the skin clear and healthy.

Eczema mostly affects children and infants but can last well into adulthood. It typically starts on the face and flexural areas and can extend all over the individual’s body. The condition can be extremely itchy and can hamper the individual’s quality of life substantially. Irritant contact dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis are generally caused due to exposure to excessive toxic substances or allergic substances. Seborrheic dermatitis is eczema related to oil glands and occurs in areas that have a high density of oil glands.

Scaling and redness are commonly visible around the nose, on the medial aspect of eyebrows, behind the ears and may also be associated with dandruff.

Eczema Treatment

Dermapoint provides the best eczema treatment under the expert guidance of an expert eczema specialist. The dermatologist must identify the cause of eczema to provide correct and effective treatment. Individuals with a family history of allergic diseases or asthma are more likely to have this condition. Eczema medications can relieve the symptoms and help in healing the skin if taken under the consultation of a dermatologist.

The affected individual must use suitable dermatological prescribed moisturizing lotions generously to help with flaky and dry skin, especially in long-standing or chronic eczemas.

The dermatologist may also suggest skin cleansers or mild soap suitable for the individual’s skin type as well as oral medication and topical medications like corticosteroids and calcineurin inhibitors, depending on the particular skin condition.

Various medications exist to help with eczema symptoms, so a dermatologist might have to test a few options to see what works best for a particular individual. Corticosteroid creams, foams, solutions, and ointments are often the first things doctors recommend to deal with mild eczema, although they come in varying strengths and help relieve itching and reduce inflammation. NSAID ointment is a non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory medication used for mild to moderate forms of eczema.

Barrier repair moisturizers are also beneficial since they can help lock water into the skin, repairing any damage while easing the redness, itching, and pain.

Corticosteroid pills (or liquids/shots), antibiotics, and antihistamines can also be useful in dealing with dermatitis.

Another effective course of action is phototherapy, a procedure where ultraviolet light is utilized to treat moderate to severe dermatitis. The procedure uses the UV rays to keep the immunity system from overreacting but can also age the skin and increase the chances of skin cancer.
