Eczema Treatment Boca Raton

The term eczema, or atopic dermatitis, describes red itchy skin with dryness and scaling typically beginning in childhood. Infants develop rashes on their lips, whereas toddlers typically have eczema on the creases of the elbows and knees. More severe cases can involve part or all the skin on the arms, torso and legs. Typically eczema is hereditary (although sometimes family members have allergies or asthma rather than eczema), but many factors can affect if eczema is active or not. Virtually anything that can irritate the skin can make eczema worse: heat (because of perspiration on the skin), cold (because of low humidity in the atmosphere and dry skin), odor, and wool (scratchy). Foods are a cause for a minority of children with eczema. The fantastic thing is that most kids grow out of eczema when they’re teens, but about 25 percent go on to have it the rest of their lives, some very acute, and a few with localized hand dermatitis.

How Do We Treat Eczema?

There are no known cures for eczema, but now available remedies address many factors that may lead to inflammation in the skin. When the eczema is intense, the treatments include topical antiinflammatory prescriptions (topical steroids and other non-steroid lotions such as Protopic or Elidel) and anti-histamines as well as oral cortisone. For prevention, keeping the skin barrier (that isn’t normal in people with eczema) requires careful choices of moisturizing lotions (Trixera Emollient Cream,Vanicream, and Restoraderm are great ), avoidance of triggers (use cotton, use odor free fabric softener and laundry detergent, in addition to shampoo (Free and Clear) and mild soaps (Surgras Lipikar Bar) and use a humidifier in the home. In the end, there are more germs on the skin in people with eczema, and though it appears the reverse of common sense, it’s great to take bleach baths twice a week (one capful of bleach in a full tub of water) for 5-7 minutes. The germs may increase the rash.

Frequently Asked Questions About Eczema Treatment

What Is Eczema?

Eczema is a general term used to describe a group of conditions that make your skin become dry, red, inflamed, itchy and bumpy in Boca Raton. However, this term is most frequently used to refer to a condition known as atopic dermatitis, where the skin barrier function (essentially the “glue” of skin) becomes damaged. Loss of barrier function makes the skin more prone to infection, more sensitive and likely to become dry.

How Common Is Eczema?

Eczema is a common skin condition, particularly in very young children. The National Institutes of Health states that 10 to 20 percent of infants have eczema. However, nearly half outgrow the condition or have significant improvement as they get older. Eczema equally females and males and tends to happen more often in those who have a family or personal history of allergies and asthma.

What Are Common Eczema Symptoms?

The symptoms of eczema include:

  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Dry, crusted or scaly skin that might appear thick and leathery from scratching
  • Small, fluid-filled blisters that might ooze when scratched or simply bumps

How Is Eczema Treated?

Eczema treatment is usually dictated by the symptoms (for example, oozing blisters are treated differently than dry skin) and the factors that trigger or even worsen your symptoms. No one treatment is suitable for everyone. The goal of eczema treatment in Boca Raton is to reduce discomfort and itching and to prevent infection and additional flare-ups.

What Kind Of Complications Are Associated With Eczema?

  • Severely itchy eczema can disrupt sleep
  • Some people who suffer with eczema avoid social activities because they are self-conscious and/or uncomfortable
