Dermatitis & Eczema

Eczema and other forms of dermatitis are a type of chronic epidermal inflammation.

Patients suffering from eczema typically experience skin dryness, recurring itchy rashes, redness, swelling, and blistering.

There are many causes of dermatitis, including contact with an irritant or allergen (contact dermatitis), or results simply as a response to a change in temperature/humidity. When contact dermatitis is suspected, we use patch testing – with a panel of 65 common allergens used as a screening test – to determine the specific causes of allergic reaction.

Though there is no cure currently available for eczema or dermatitis, there are treatments that can control its various symptoms, including antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, and antihistamines. Our doctors also prescribe medications and recommend products, which our office carries, to prevent/treat dry skin and help restore normal skin function.
