What is Eczema?

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition that is characterized by itchy, red, and inflamed skin. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, allergies, and environmental triggers. Symptoms of eczema can include dry, scaly skin, small bumps that can ooze or crust over, and thickened or cracked skin. 

When is it necessary to see a doctor?

If you experience persistent dry, itchy, or inflamed skin that does not respond to over-the-counter treatments, it's time to see a dermatologist. A dermatologist can prescribe prescription creams and ointments to help manage your eczema and prevent flare-ups. Treatment for eczema can include topical creams and ointments, oral medications, and lifestyle changes such as avoiding triggers and using gentle skin care products. In some cases, eczema may go away on its own, but it can also be a lifelong condition.
