A dermatologist wearing gloves examines the skin of a patient Do you struggle with eczema? You’re not alone—eczema is one of the most common skin conditions and can be a real challenge. With Vivan Bucay, MD, at the helm, we’ll help guide you through the ins and outs of eczema. We’ll discuss the causes, symptoms, and treatments to help you take control of your skin.

What is Eczema?

Eczema is a chronic condition that causes dry, itchy patches on the skin. The condition comes in many different forms, such as: 

  • Contact dermatitis (caused by irritants like allergens or chemicals)
  • Atopic dermatitis (caused by allergies)
  • Nummular eczema (caused by coin-shaped lesions on the skin)
  • Seborrheic dermatitis (caused by oily skin or scalp)
  • Dyshidrotic eczema (caused by small blisters on hands or feet)

While these are all different types of eczema, they all have similar symptoms, such as itching, redness, swelling, scaling, and skin flaking. In extreme cases, the affected area may ooze or crust over.

Eczema Causes

The exact cause of eczema is unknown, but certain factors can contribute to its development, such as genetics, environmental irritants like dust mites or certain fabrics/detergents/soaps/lotions/makeup products, stress levels, and immune system issues. Knowing these factors can help you take preventative measures to reduce your risk of developing eczema in the future.

Eczema Treatments

Eczema sufferers are fortunate to have a variety of treatment options available. Treatments include avoiding triggers (allergens or irritating fabrics), frequent moisturizing to keep the skin hydrated, and anti-inflammatory medications to ease itching, redness, swelling, and scaling. Adding natural remedies to your skincare routine, such as aloe vera gel or tea tree oil, can provide additional relief from eczema symptoms, according to Dr. Bucay. If none of these treatments provide adequate relief, you may need to consider other options, such as phototherapy or topical steroids.
