Eczema Signs and Symptoms

Typically, eczema presents as dry, itchy patches of skin. It tends to be worse in the winter time. Eczema symptoms tend to wax and wane. When it is exacerbated, it can become superinfected particularly in children.

 

Eczema Treatments

As eczema can be a chronic disorder, effective treatment first begins with education on how to best take care of sensitive skin and how to avoid products and chemicals that can worsen eczema.

 

Medical treatments for eczema include topical steroids and topical medications, oral antihistamines (for itching), antibiotics (for severely  infected eczema), and oral steroids. In extreme cases, light therapy or stronger oral medications may be warranted.
