Symptoms and Causes of Eczema:

Eczema symptoms can vary but commonly include:

  • Itchy Skin: Often intense and worse at night.
  • Red to Brownish-Gray Patches: Commonly on the hands, feet, ankles, wrists, neck, upper chest, eyelids, inside the bend of elbows and knees, and in infants, the face and scalp.
  • Small, Raised Bumps: Which may leak fluid and crust over when scratched.
  • Thickened, Cracked, Scaly Skin: Over time, chronic scratching can lead to thickened skin.
  • Raw, Sensitive Skin: From scratching.

Eczema can be triggered by environmental factors like pollen, pet dander, and certain foods, as well as stress and harsh soaps or detergents.

Comprehensive Treatment Approach:

  • Customized Treatment Plans: Based on the severity and location of eczema, including topical treatments like corticosteroid creams, calcineurin inhibitors, and emollients for skin hydration.
  • Systemic Medications: For severe cases, options may include oral medications or injectables to control inflammation.
  • Lifestyle and Skincare Guidance: Advice on skincare routines, avoiding triggers, and stress management techniques.
  • Phototherapy: In some cases, using controlled light therapy to reduce symptoms.
  • Patient Education: Empowering patients with information about eczema, its triggers, and self-care techniques.
  • Ongoing Monitoring and Support: Regular follow-ups to adjust treatment plans as needed and provide ongoing support.

When to Seek Treatment for Eczema:

Professional care should be sought if:

  • Eczema symptoms are severe, causing significant discomfort or affecting sleep.
  • There is no improvement with over-the-counter remedies.
  • The skin becomes infected, indicated by red streaks, pus, or yellow scabs.

Managing eczema effectively requires a comprehensive approach that addresses both the skin symptoms and the underlying triggers. Professional medical care ensures that patients receive the most appropriate treatments and guidance to control their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
