Eczema is an umbrella term describing several kinds of skin inflammation. Also called dermatitis, eczema results in dry, itchy skin and facial rashes that can also develop behind the knees and inside the elbows. If you are suffering from eczema and scratch your skin, it may cause it to turn red, swelling and itching more than before. Thankfully, we offer effective eczema treatment right here at Atomic Dermatology.
Atopic dermatitis is the most frequently seen type of eczema and occurs mostly in babies and young children, although adults can also suffer from it. When children with atopic dermatitis mature, the condition may fade or resolve itself completely. However, for some, the skin may remain dry and easily become irritated.
It’s important to understand that eczema treatment is not one-size-fits-all. To remain healthy while dealing with eczema is to keep your symptoms manageable. With most forms of eczema, controlling your condition and symptoms consists of basics like:
* Knowing your triggers
* Implementing a moisturizing and bathing regimen
* Using your medication regularly as prescribed
* Looking for symptoms of infection like redness, pain, and heat on your skin
One way to prevent worsening your eczema symptoms is avoiding rubbing and scratching affected skin. You should also refrain from contact with substances or materials that may trigger your condition. Dress in comfortable, soft clothing and refrain from wearing fabrics that can irritate your eczema, like wool.
Unfortunately, some eczema sufferers can do all of the right things and their condition still flares. Eczema is often an unpredictable condition, and much research is ongoing to learn more about it. Having a random eczema flare-up is not uncommon and can occur in spite of your best efforts.
