What is Eczema?

Eczema is a non-contagious skin condition that is associated with red, itchy and inflamed skin. It presents as dry and scaly skin that is easily irritated, causing pain. Eczema is not a single condition, but rather multiple related skin disorders that share common traits. It can appear in all ages and its severity can vary a lot. 

Our experienced dermatologist, at DRHC has exceptional skills in diagnosing and treating various skin conditions, but they are particularly known for their expertise in dealing with eczema. Whether you're struggling with dry, itchy patches or persistent flare-ups, our Specialist has the knowledge and compassion to provide you with the best possible care.

Causes of Eczema:

The exact cause of eczema is unknown. However, we do understand that a few factors play a role including genetic, environmental, and immune system factors:

Family History – Eczema history in the family can increase your chance of having eczema

Age – Eczema is more common in young children as symptoms improve as they become older

Irritant exposure – Exposure to things such as harsh soaps, detergents and allergens can trigger or worsen eczema

Signs and symptoms of Eczema:

Common Eczema symptoms include:

  • Itching – Main feature of eczema and can lead to scratching, which worsens the eczema
  • Dryness – Skin appears scaly, dry and rough particularly at the joints. Skin can also appear cracked or blistered
  • Redness and inflammation – present at the area of affected skin.
  • Oozing and crusting – oozing of fluid that leads to crusting and pain
  • Dark colored patches

Treatment of Eczema:

Different Eczema patients experience different severities and symptoms. At DRHC, we appreciate this and tailor your treatment to your needs. Your Eczema treatment may include:

  • Skin Moisturizer – apply to hydrate the dry skin
  • Topical medication – Apply as advised by the doctor, such as topical (cream) steroids
  • Oral medication – Such as oral antihistamines to control itching
  • Immunosuppressant drugs – help regulate immune system function
