Understanding Eczema

Eczema, also called atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition that causes dry, itchy, and inflamed skin. Many factors can trigger eczema flare-ups, such as stress, allergens, irritants, and changes in temperature or humidity.

Common Symptoms of Eczema

Typical symptoms include scaly patches of very dry skin that range from red to brownish-gray in color, itching, small raised bumps that may leak fluid and crust over when scratched, thickened or cracked scaly skin, and raw sensitive swollen skin from scratching.

Common Causes of Eczema

The precise cause of eczema is unknown, but it’s believed to be connected to an overactive response by the body’s immune system to an irritant or trigger. It is prevalent in children but can develop at any age.

Several factors can trigger eczema flare-ups. Common causes include dry skin, irritants, allergens, climate, hormonal changes, and stress. 

Irritants that may worsen eczema symptoms range from soaps and detergents to rough fabrics and extreme temperatures.

Allergens like dust mites, pet dander, pollen, and certain foods can also provoke outbreaks in some individuals.

Identifying personal eczema triggers is crucial for managing the condition effectively. 

Keeping a symptom diary can help pinpoint specific substances or situations that aggravate your skin.

Available Treatment Options

Treatment options for eczema range from topical treatments with creams and ointments to oral medications and light therapy. Topical corticosteroids reduce inflammation and itching, while moisturizers keep the skin hydrated. Oral antihistamines can help with severe itching. In some cases, doctors may prescribe immunosuppressants or antibiotics to control symptoms and prevent infections.

For those with persistent or severe atopic eczema, phototherapy using ultraviolet light may be an effective treatment. This therapy helps to calm inflammation and reduce itching. Newer medications like dupilumab (Dupixent) and crisaborole (Eucrisa) target specific components of the immune system to alleviate eczema symptoms.

Online-Medical-Consultation

If you suffer from having atopic dermatitis or eczema flares, here are few tips to help take care of your skin and prevent your skin from becoming inflamed and irritated: 

Keep your skin moisturized at least twice a day with bath oils, creams, lotions, ointments or sprays. Choose skin products that are free of alcohol, fragrances, dyes, or any other ingredients that may irritate the skin. Give enough time for the moisturizer to penetrate the skin before getting dressed.

For mild flare ups, use over the counter hydrocortisone cream twice daily to prevent it from becoming a full blown flare up. You may use this cream before applying the moisturizer then stop once the inflamed skin has resolved.

Consider taking an antihistamine, such as Zyrtec, Allegra, Benadryl to help with itchy skin. Bendadryl has sedative effects so it may be best to take at nighttime.

Minimize scratching or picking at the skin. Instead, cover the area of irritated skin and keep your nails trimmed.
