ECZEMA DOCTOR NYC

ECZEMA DERMATOLOGIST

Our eczema doctor in NYC can help you find the proper eczema treatment. Eczema affects millions of people every year, making it one of the most common skin conditions. Eczema has many forms but often appears as dry, cracked skin. Oozing, crusting, and having a rash-like appearance are also signs of eczema. Eczema occurs most often in children, but it can be present in adults, as well. Because eczema has so much variability, it is best to consult our NYC eczema dermatologists. At Dermatology, Laser & Surgery of Carnegie Hill, our eczema specialists can help determine what type of eczema you have, and what type of treatment would be best for you.

WHAT IS ECZEMA?

Eczema is a chronic skin condition that is best managed through long-term treatment. Eczema is considered an immunological condition because it stems from disruptions in the immune system from allergens, environmental factors, and irritants. Dry skin, ingredients in shampoos or soaps, sweating, temperature changes, certain foods, or stress can all cause eczema. These disturbances cause the skin to flare up and itch. Eczema can affect the face, neck, inner elbows, behind the knees, and the hands and feet. Eczema typically begins in childhood, but it can occur in adulthood, too. Our eczema doctors offer many medications and therapies that can stop or reduce the symptoms of eczema.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF ECZEMA?

Eczema can appear in different forms, and it is possible to have more than one type of eczema. Seeking the care of one of our qualified NYC eczema doctors can help identify the right treatment or combination of treatments to achieve the best results for you. Types of eczema include:

      Atopic Dermatitis: The most common form of eczema. It forms a red rash that causes dryness and irritation.
      Contact Dermatitis: Is caused by contact with an outside irritant, often causing redness or hives. Subtypes include irritant contact dermatitis (chemicals), allergic contact dermatitis (allergens), and contact urticaria.
      Dyshidrotic Eczema: Small blisters form on your hands and feet. Blisters are often itchy and filled with fluid.
      Nummular Eczema: Circular rashes form on the affected area(s). Common on the arms and legs.
      Seborrheic Dermatitis: Affects the scalp. Causes flaky, red, or oily skin. Can also occur on the face, upper chest, and back.
      Stasis Dermatitis: Caused by fluid buildup in the legs. Skin appears discolored and thicker than before.

WHAT TREATMENTS DO ECZEMA SPECIALISTS RECOMMEND?

AM I AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR ECZEMA TREATMENT?

If you have been diagnosed with eczema and experience symptoms of itchiness, redness, flaking, or swollen skin, eczema treatment may be right for you. We can give you a proper diagnosis and help you find relief from eczema symptoms.

WILL ANESTHESIA BE USED FOR ECZEMA TREATMENT?

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER ECZEMA TREATMENT?

There is no downtime required when undergoing eczema treatment. Any day-to-day routines can be continued the same as before. Limiting sun exposure and following skincare regimen instructions can help expedite treatment time.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM NYC ECZEMA TREATMENT?

Flareups, itchiness, dryness, and other symptoms should be much more maintained after eczema treatment. The skin will look healthier and more radiant than before. Our NYC eczema dermatologists work closely with each patient to monitor the progress of eczema symptoms.
