What is Eczema?

Eczema, also commonly referred to as atopic dermatitis, is an autoimmune skin condition that causes the appearance of red, scaly patches of skin. Although most often seen in infants and young children, eczema has the potential to stay prevalent through adolescence and adulthood. In addition to the skin being red and scaly, patients with eczema may also find that these patches of skin are intensely itchy and accompanied by small, red bumps that ooze or thickened skin. Eczema typically isn’t a harmful condition on its own but it has the potential to leave open wounds that are prone to infection. If you find that you or your child may be suffering from eczema, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our expert medical team members. They’ll be happy to sit down with you, assess your skin, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you get back to looking and feeling like yourself again.

What Causes Eczema?

While many medical professionals believe that eczema is a result of an overactive immune system, we still aren’t quite sure what the exact cause of eczema is. Our patients find that their eczema flare-ups can be triggered by a variety of factors including exposure to chemicals found in cleaning products, wearing synthetic or thick fabrics, changes in temperature, excessive sweating, stress, food allergies, animal dander, and more. We also find patients whose parents or family members have eczema may be at a higher risk of developing eczema as well.

What Eczema Treatments are Available?

Dr. Jennifer Armstrong’s professional medical team is proud to offer a wide range of eczema treatments to men, women, and children, including:

  • Prescription Oral and Topical Medication
    • Similar to skin allergies, patients can treat the autoimmune response causing their eczema breakouts with the use of prescription medications. We will go over each medication with you, so you can choose the best one for your body and lifestyle.
  • Medical-Grade Skincare Products
    • Over-the-counter skincare products contain harmful ingredients that may end up worsening your eczema flare-ups. We encourage all patients with eczema to consider the use of medical-grade skincare products, as the high-quality ingredients are more gentle on your sensitive skin.

How Much Do Eczema Treatments Cost?

The cost of your eczema treatments will depend on the type of treatment you choose to receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and the coverage provided by your current health insurance plan. To get a better idea of how much your eczema treatments will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation.
