Treatments for Eczema

Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, affects an estimated 10-20% of people, both children and adults. Many infants with eczema experience their first flare up before their first birthday and this skin condition can follow them throughout their lifetime. Eczema can range from mild symptoms that occasionally occur to severe symptoms that can make it difficult to perform daily activities. At MJR Dermatology, we offer advanced treatments for eczema for patients of all ages at our clinic in Lawrenceville, GA.

Causes and Symptoms of Eczema

Eczema is a systemic disease that results in skin inflammation due to an overactive immune system. Most flare ups occur due to a triggering event, such as contact with an allergen. Eczema tends to be hereditary – those with asthma and other allergies are at higher risk for eczema.

The majority of people with eczema are children. Up to 20% of children have eczema, which most will grow out of by the time they are adults. However, about 10% of adults have eczema, and this skin condition affects people of all skin colors and genders.

Symptoms of eczema include:

  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Red rashes
  • Leathery patches of skin, often around the joints
  • Scaly, crusty skin
  • Inflamed or swollen skin

Eczema flare ups can occur anywhere on the body and usually are triggered by allergens. Food allergies, dry weather, pollutants, chemicals and other environmental factors can cause eczema reactions, as well as emotional stress.
