Eczema Q&A

What is eczema?

Eczema is due to an overreaction of your immune system. This overreaction makes your skin red, inflamed, and itchy.

The medical term for eczema is atopic dermatitis. The exact cause of eczema is something of a mystery, and doctors aren't exactly sure why some individuals get eczema and others don't. However, eczema tends to run in families, and you have a higher chance of getting eczema if you have allergies or asthma.

Eczema is particularly common in infants. By one estimate, up to 20% of children have the condition, although most will outgrow it. For adults who don't outgrow eczema, it can be a serious condition. However, with the right treatment, the team at Cure Allergy Clinic can prevent flare-ups, giving you or a loved one lasting relief.

What are the symptoms of eczema?

With eczema, you may experience:

  • Itching
  • Dry skin that may crack or bleed
  • Red rash
  • Red patches
  • Skin color changes
  • Blisters

Eczema symptoms tend to come and go. The location of eczema also varies, depending on your age. It usually appears on infants’ and children's:

  • Cheeks
  • Knees
  • Outside of their elbows

In adolescents and adults, it's more commonly found on the hands, arms, feet, and the back of their knees.

How is eczema diagnosed?

Your provider at Cure Allergy Clinic starts by taking a comprehensive medical history, asking whether you've been exposed to allergens or irritants, and examining your skin.

They may recommend testing for an allergic reaction to certain substances. Your provider may perform a skin prick test during which they make a tiny puncture in your skin and apply a diluted allergen. Then they watch the test area for 15 minutes to see if bumps or redness develop. A reaction suggests that you're allergic to the test substance.

How is eczema treated?

Your provider at Cure Allergy Clinic works with you to determine the underlying cause of your outbreaks so you can avoid your triggers.

Common triggers of eczema include:

  • Certain foods
  • Pet dander
  • Mold
  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Detergents
  • Wool
  • Cosmetics

If your eczema is severe, your provider recommends medications, including antihistamine creams or steroids, to minimize uncomfortable symptoms like redness and itching. You also might benefit from allergy drops or shots to help minimize or eliminate an underlying allergy.
