Eczema treatment

Eczema treatment

Eczema is a disease that causes inflammation of the skin and appears as an itchy, red rash.

Dyshidrotic eczema is a form of eczema that manifests as pruritic vesicles on fingers, soles and palms. Dyshidrotic eczema treatment usually involves strong topical steroids and cryotherapy. Oral steroids can also be used in short courses.

There is also a disease popularly called baby eczema. Baby eczema treatment does not differ from adults’ eczema treatment, i.e.: topical steroids are used to reduce inflammation. In very severe cases, oral steroids can also be prescribed. Daily bathing is also recommended to reduce dryness of skin. However, water should be warm, as you ought to avoid hot water. Bathing should last for no more than 10 minutes and should not contain bath additives, because they can irritate skin even more.

Best treatment for eczema is a combined one. The patient will probably need some topical steroids and oral steroid courses to manage the disease. Natural treatment methods can be added to medical ones as they improve skin condition even more. It is important to moisturize skin each day, take warm baths and showers, do not rub your towel to the skin, avoid eczema triggers (for example, stress), avoid excessive sweating, maybe even remove carpets from the house if they cause allergies.

Hand eczema treatment is even more complicated, because hands are always in use. It is even more difficult to treat hand eczema when it is present for a longer period of time. The skin becomes thick because of long lasting itch and constant scratching. Thus, it makes it harder to heal properly. Consequently, it makes a longer way for topical medications to penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin, where the inflammatory processes take place. This is the main reason why it is so important to diagnose and treat the condition as early as possible. Corticosteroids may be used after diagnosing the condition. There are non – corticosteroid topical medications as well, that have fewer side effects, but they are not equally effective in severe cases.

Treatment for eczema may also involve hydrocortisone cream. It reduces inflammation and itch, which are two basic problems when dealing with eczema. This eczema treatment is over the counter – you do not need a doctor’s prescription to buy it. Nevertheless, when dealing with eczema, it is important to consult with your dermatologist, because he can pick the best treatment for your condition.
