Eczema

Eczema

Eczema, also referred to as Atopic Dermatis, most commonly occurs as an itchy, red rash. It can appear all over the body, but regularly emerges on the elbows and knees. Babies often have eczema on the face, especially the cheeks and chin.  Those with eczema are usually diagnosed when they are babies or young children. Eczema symptoms often become less severe as children grow into adults. For some people, eczema continues into adulthood. Less often, it can start in adulthood.

The symptoms of eczema are different for each person. The rash may even look different or affect different parts of your body from time to time. It can be mild, moderate, or severe. Generally, people with eczema symptoms suffer from dry, sensitive skin. Eczema is also known for its intense itch.

The dermatology providers and staff at Cascade Eye & Skin Centers, P.C. can assist eczema patients with prescription and non-prescription medications.  They also recommend avoiding hot baths and showers, moisturizing everyday and using a humidifier in dry or cold weather.
