Centreville, VA patients suffering from conditions such as eczema may be unsure of their treatment options. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to helping individuals achieve the results they desire and offer a variety of treatments for patients suffering from conditions such as eczema. Eczema is a condition that causes an itchy rash that can be incredibly uncomfortable and greatly affect one’s quality of life. Once diagnosed with eczema, patients often have questions, such as:
- Can eczema be cured?
- How can I avoid flare-ups?
- What treatment is most reliable?
- What can a dermatologist do?
Can Eczema be Cured?
No. Eczema often causes chronic problems. However, once diagnosed, there are ways for patients to reduce the chances of flare-ups.
How can I Avoid Flare-Ups?
Eczema flare-ups are often caused by exposure to certain elements or by skin that has become dry. Patients with eczema are encouraged to ensure their skin is moisturized, especially during the harsh, dry winter months. Patients can also avoid exposure to the things that cause flare-ups such as certain detergents or skin products.
What Treatment is Most Reliable?
Eczema responds differently in each patient, so the dermatologists at our practice need to provide a proper diagnosis and then prescribe products to see how the skin reacts. Sometimes there is a trial and error period before the right treatment is found.
What can a Dermatologist do?
Dermatologists can provide a diagnosis, determining the exact type of eczema present, and then offer solutions such as creams or medication.
