What is it?

Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that usually begins in the first few years of life. It is also associated with a chance of development of other allergic conditions such as allergic rhinitis (hay fever), food allergy, and asthma when the child gets older. Our physician is an expert in diagnosing and treating atopic dermatitis and its associated conditions.

What are the symptoms?

In infants, it usually appears as red bumps or dry patches on the cheeks. Older children often experience rashes on the backs of their knees or elbows, on the back of their hands, or on the scalp.

Symptoms include:

  • Red or flaky patches of skin
  • Itchiness
  • Dry skin

How is it treated?

The main goal of treating eczema is improving quality of life. This involves a combination of avoidance of triggers, moisturizing skin, and decreasing the itch. Topical medications are helpful. Some eczema can be treated with biological (injectable) medications. Allergy shots are also helpful. However, each case of eczema is different and the best way to treat it is to see a board-certified allergist. Our physician is an expert in the treatment of both pediatric and adult eczema and can develop a personalized treatment plan.
