The classic description of eczema is “the itch that rashes.” Essentially, it is an inflammatory skin condition that presents itself as a red, dry, and scaly rash. While there may be other symptoms associated with eczema, burning and itching are the most common reported symptoms.
Chronic eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is often seen in younger children. However, it can affect adults. Your eczema treatment can help evaluate and diagnose your eczema and make treatment recommendations to better control your skin condition and effectively follow the best practices for Eczema treatment.
What are the Signs of Eczema in Children and Adults?
Children who have eczema have a rash on their face, neck, elbows, and knees. Adults are more likely to present a rash anywhere on their body. More common locations on adults are the inner arms or behind the knees and hands.
While there is no cure for eczema, there are treatment options that can help soothe symptoms and reduce the number of outbreaks.
For itching and discomfort, the following treatments may be suggested:
- Steroid creams
- Creams and Lotions
An irritant often triggers eczema. If you notice that your skin responds poorly to particular products or fabrics, then you should avoid those irritants as much as possible. As with any skin rash, it may take some time to find a treatment that works. However, some professionals may help you along your skincare journey.
How Can a Skin Dermatologist Help in Eczema Treatment?
A dermatology provider can help identify and treat eczema. Because there are multiple eczema types, it may be difficult for people to self-diagnosis or properly administrate eczema rash treatment. A highly trained dermatologist can guide you through the process and help you find a customized treatment plan that suits your needs.
