If your skin is irritated or inflamed with eczema, we can help. At Lux Dermatology, our attentive and experienced dermatologists have the tools to relieve eczema and prevent further infection.
Eczema is a medical condition that causes skin to become infected, inflamed, and irritated. In the United States, eczema affects more children than adults. Most infants outgrow eczema before their teen years, but others exhibit symptoms throughout every stage of life. While there isn’t any “cure” for eczema, our treatments will control your eczema and keep your skin healthy.
There are dozens of different types of eczema, including:
Atopic dermatitis – Common and chronic (long-lasting)
Hand eczema – Affects up to 10 percent of the United States population
Dyshidrotic eczema – Appears in blister form on fingers, palms, and soles of feet
Stasis dermatitis – Affects the veins and generally appears on the lower legs
Although atopic dermatitis is the most common type of eczema our dermatologists encounter, we understand the complexity of the disease and will treat your individual case.
Whether you suffer from atopic dermatitis or dyshidrotic eczema, the common symptoms for eczema remain the same: perpetual itchiness. When you have eczema, the affected areas of your skin will generally flare up and become dry, thickened, and scaly. If you have a dark complexion, eczema might affect pigmentation and discolor the affected area.
