At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to assisting patients in the Centreville area with their skin care concerns. Eczema is a condition that can affect patients of all ages in the Centreville, VA area including children. This skin condition, also known as dermatosis, can result in red, itchy, and dry skin on areas of the body including the hands, feet, face, and scalp. This condition can be extremely uncomfortable and children and adults can collaborate with a dermatologist to determine the best eczema treatment.
First, patients must visit the practice of Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia to consult with our team of doctors during an initial examination. During this visit, patients can receive a proper diagnosis and ask any questions they may have about the condition to get a better idea of the concern they are dealing with. Patients will also be asked about any possible irritants which they may have come in contact with that could result in flare-ups to understand what triggers may have caused the problem to occur. Sometimes there is a specific reason why the eczema flares up, and by avoiding these triggers, patients can reduce how often they deal with the condition.
Once diagnosed, there is more than one eczema treatment available, especially for kids. Children and adults in the Centreville, VA area will benefit from speaking with a dermatologist and choosing a treatment solution to start with. Sometimes one treatment will work for one individual while it may not be effective enough for another, so trying more than one treatment may be necessary. Most treatment options include the use of topical creams which can help in reducing the redness, itchiness, and appearance of eczema to ensure patients comfort during flare-ups.
