Eczema affects around 16.5 million adults in the U.S, with a little less than half reporting moderate to severe symptoms. In addition to the obvious outward appearance and discomfort of the condition, eczema also creates unexpected social, emotional, and financial challenges.
Eczema. By definition, “a chronic, inflammatory skin disease, which results in widespread rashes and patches of itchy skin”. Also referred to as “atopic dermatitis”, this skin condition often goes untreated for years.
Usually mistaken as just “really dry skin”, it commonly presents in childhood and is sometimes written-off until adulthood, or until it becomes severe.
In children and adolescents, it is strongly linked to a family history of asthma, hay fever, food allergies, and other allergic conditions.
Although the exact cause is unknown, eczema is not contagious and cannot be spread to others. Common triggers can include a variety of environmental and food allergens, that activate the immune system and cause an abnormal histamine response. This presents as dry, highly sensitive, itchy, inflamed skin.
Although eczema cannot be cured, it can be effectively and comfortably managed by your dermatologist. Treatment options can include, one, many, or a combination of the following:
Your dermatologist will evaluate your condition and take into account your personal and family health history. He or she will then make an official diagnosis and recommend a treatment plan specifically for you.
