What is Eczema?
A variety of conditions are often associated with Eczema, including skin that is itchy, red, and inflamed. Patients who are afflicted with this condition are often embarrassed by it, and cover up these uncomfortable patches of skin. Eczema flairs up also add quite a bit of social anxiety to those who are suffering from it. While it may feel like you are the only person suffering from it, over 30 million Americans have eczema. Over the years, doctors have developed many treatment options that have helped people alleviate their symptoms.

What sort of treatments for Eczema can I expect at your clinic?
The choice of treatment for your Eczema depends on the type Eczema our skin care specialists diagnoses you with. In addition, the cause of your eczema can also play a factor in narrowing down the best treatment for you. At WellAve Dermatology, you’ll receive a customized skin care plan. Every patient is different and so is their skin, so there is no one “standard plan” that we apply to every patient. We will create a plan that helps you feel better, works for you, and is maintainable.
Some treatments we implement include :
- Specific shower temperatures
- Medications such as TC inhibitors, PDE4, and Corticosteroids.
- Moisturization products
- In severe cases, topical treatments
In addition to these treatments, our experts may recommend Phototherapy. This method has been shown to increase the production of vitamin D, which activates the skin’s own bacteria fighting abilities. The effectiveness of this treatment depends on the type of skin you have and is not for everyone. However, in some cases, phototherapy has eliminated eczema in a patient over time. Our skin care specialists will talk with you one on one to see if this is an excellent treatment choice for your eczema. Even if phototherapy isn’t for you, they will find the best treatment plan for your eczema.
