Eczema Treatment in Phoenix and Surprise

Eczema can be a very frustrating, uncomfortable, and embarrassing condition, and it can have a seriously negative impact on daily life. If you’re interested in treating eczema in the Phoenix, Buckeye, and Surprise area for either you or your child, our specialists at Regency can help. 

What is eczema?

Eczema (dermatitis) is a skin disorder that most commonly affects infants, children, and teenagers, but it can also last into adulthood. The condition is characterized by red, dry, flaky skin that severely itches. Eczema most often occurs due to an allergic reaction or an immunity malfunction and appears mostly on the face, hands, feet, scalp, buttocks, neck, and the inside of the elbows and knees. If left untreated, eczema can cause bumpy, dry, itchy skin over time. 

Symptoms of eczema

Eczema is particularly frustrating because scratching can further irritate it, but the itching is very intense. The most common symptoms of eczema also include:

  • Redness and rash
  • Scaling and dryness
  • Blisters
  • Raised, crusty patches
  • Skin discoloration
  • Cracks and bleeding

How is eczema diagnosed?

If you think you or your child may have eczema, you will need to come in for a consultation. Eczema is diagnosed by physical examination. We may also do tests to determine any other allergies so that any potential triggers can be discovered.

What can cause eczema flare-ups?

Eczema goes through periods of recession, but flare-ups can occur due to several factors. These can include soap and detergent, certain foods and fabrics, and change in temperature.
