Eczema

Treating Your Eczema

Model ImageEczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, manifests itself as irritated, itchy skin patches and plaques. The condition, which starts with a red, itchy area and eventually blossoms into a persistent rash, affects from 10 to 30% of the U.S. population.

Since eczema is a chronic skin condition that, at this time, cannot be completely "cured," our dermatologists will work with you to control your symptoms by minimizing outbreaks, controlling flares, and preventing infection. Limiting exposure to irritants and keeping one's skin healthy and moisturized play an important role in managing your eczema. Schedule your consultation with one of our dermatologists today or call our offices at (815) 744-8554 .

A proper treatment regimen is essential to manage eczema flares. Depending on the location, extent and severity of your eczema, your regimen may include some combination of the following: topical steroids of various strengths, topical "immunomodulators" which aim to maintain periods of remission while minimizing the use of steroids, antihistamines for allergy symptoms and control of itching, and oral antibiotics for superinfection when needed. Our dermatologists will discuss the treatment options appropriate for your skin type and disease severity, and work together with you to achieve clearer, healthier skin.
