Dermatitis/ ECZEMA

Welcome to Medical Skin And Laser, where our experienced medical team is dedicated to helping individuals with dermatitis and eczema find relief and achieve healthier skin.

 

Our knowledgeable professionals understand the complexities of these skin conditions and provide specialized care tailored to each patient's needs. 

Here's how our team can assist:

 

Accurate Diagnosis: Our skilled doctors will conduct a thorough evaluation of your symptoms, medical history, and perform any necessary tests to ensure an accurate diagnosis of dermatitis or eczema. This precise diagnosis is crucial for developing an effective treatment plan.​

  1. Dermatitis: Dermatitis is a general term that describes inflammation of the skin. It can be caused by various factors, such as irritants, allergens, genetic factors, or underlying medical conditions.

  2. Eczema: Eczema specifically refers to a chronic skin condition characterized by dry, itchy, red, and inflamed skin. It is a form of dermatitis.

    1. Types of Dermatitis:

      1. Atopic Dermatitis: Atopic dermatitis is the most common type of eczema. It often begins in infancy or childhood and is associated with a family history of allergic conditions like asthma or hay fever.

      2. Contact Dermatitis: Contact dermatitis occurs when the skin comes into direct contact with an irritant (irritant contact dermatitis) or an allergen (allergic contact dermatitis), leading to a localized inflammatory response.

    2. Symptoms:

      1. Itchy, dry, and red skin.

      2. Rash or patches of thickened, scaly skin.

      3. Swelling or blisters in severe cases.

      4. Cracked or crusty skin that may ooze or weep.

      5. Skin sensitivity and pain.

    3. Causes and Triggers:

      1. Genetic factors and family history.

      2. Environmental triggers like irritants (soaps, detergents, certain fabrics) and allergens (pollen, pet dander, certain foods).

      3. Dry skin, which impairs the skin's natural barrier function.

      4. Stress, hormonal changes, and temperature changes can exacerbate symptoms.

    4. Treatment and Management:

      1. Moisturizing the skin regularly to maintain hydration.

      2. Avoiding triggers or irritants that worsen symptoms.

      3. Using mild, fragrance-free soaps and detergents.

      4. Topical corticosteroids or immunomodulators may be prescribed to reduce inflammation.

      5. Antihistamines can help alleviate itching.

      6. Phototherapy (light therapy) may be recommended in severe cases.

    5. Lifestyle and Self-Care:

      1. Wearing soft, breathable fabrics and avoiding tight clothing.

      2. Managing stress through relaxation techniques.

      3. Taking short, lukewarm showers and avoiding hot water.

      4. Using humidifiers to add moisture to the air.

      5. Avoiding scratching or rubbing the affected areas.
