Eczema Q&A

What is eczema?

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition that often presents as red, inflamed, and dry patches on the skin. According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, about 30% of people experience eczema at one point in their life. And while it's common in children and adolescents, adults aren't immune. 

Eczema is characterized by intense itching, which can lead to scratching and further aggravation. While sometimes unsightly, eczema isn't contagious, so you don't have to worry about it spreading. 

If you suffer from eczema, the Skin Care Specialists dermatologists are well-versed in identifying and treating eczema and can offer personalized care to help manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

What causes eczema?

Eczema may be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. While the exact cause remains elusive, certain triggers can exacerbate symptoms. These triggers may include allergens, stress, irritants, and climate conditions. 

The dedicated team at Skin Care Specialists takes a holistic approach to eczema care, investigating potential triggers and tailoring treatment plans to address your individual needs.

How is eczema treated?

The dermatologists at Skin Care Specialists provide evidence-based treatments aimed at relieving symptoms and preventing flare-ups. They may include:

Topical steroids

These are prescription-strength creams or ointments that can reduce inflammation and itching.


Keeping your skin hydrated with specialized creams enhances the skin barrier and prevents dryness.


Oral medications can alleviate itching and promote better sleep.

Lifestyle modifications

The Skin Care Specialists team provides guidance on how to identify and avoid triggers, and they offer stress management techniques as well.


For severe cases, medications may be needed to help your immune system control inflammation.

At Skin Care Specialists, the team prioritizes patient-centric care. They work closely with you to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and concerns. Their goal is to provide you with knowledge and support to manage your eczema for long-term relief effectively.
