Eczema is a common skin disease. It is far more prevalent in people suffering from hay fever and asthma. In the beginning, it appears as small blisters which later on convert into thickened plaques of skin. If suffering from this condition, it is important to diagnose the kind of eczema you are suffering from to get treated effectively.
Eczema symptoms differ from person to person and no two people can have similar symptoms. While itching is the most common symptom, many people may experience mild to severe itching. Some of the symptoms to look for include:
- Red, Inflamed Skin
- Dark Colored Patches in Healing Skin
- Dry, Sensitive Skin
- Oozing or Crusting
- Rough Scaly Patches of Skin
Over time, the symptoms can become more obvious and the rashes become bumpy, can thicken or darken in color.
Generally, in the treatment of eczema Dr. Lodha will recommend a number of different methods used in conjunction. The most important part of treating eczema is counseling on certain lifestyle changes and adjustments to certain specific habits that may be causing adverse skin reactions. Dr. Lodha enjoys getting patients into a rhythm with their lives rather than to continually have to treat flares with creams and other medications, it’s more important to prevent and get into good habits and form a good regimen.
