Eczema Treatments Westchester

Treatment provided by a certified dermatologist

Eczema is usually marked by dry and red patches of skin that itch and worsenwhen scratched. Eczema can occur anywhere on the body and if the skin is repeatedly scratched, the skin may become thick and resemble leather.

We treat the symptoms of eczema from our offices located in Manhattan and Scarsdale, NY.

What Causes Eczema?

Eczema is an immune system response to external factors such as soaps, clothing, or even weather. The exact cause has yet to be determined. It is not contagious, but may be hereditary.

What Are The Symptoms of Eczema?

EczemaEczema can appear differently on each person, but usually starts with intense itching, which causes scratching. The scratching frequently produces a rash that shows up as patches of red or inflamed skin that is covered with a flaky, dry skin. If it is repeatedly scratched, the patch may become crusty or ooze. Patches of eczema most often show up on the face, arms, and legs, especially in creases in the skin, but it can appear anywhere on the body.

Why Should I Visit The Westchester Center for Dermatology To Treat Eczema?

It is always best to have eczema examined by one of our experienced board-certified dermatologists in Scarsdale. Although eczema isn’t usually an emergency condition, if it worsens in spite of daily application of over-the-counter steroid creams or other home remedies, you should arrange a visit. If the skin has become infected or the rash has become hot and painful and red streaks appear, or if a fever is present, medical attention should be obtained immediately.

How Does the Westchester Center for Dermatology Treat Eczema?

There are many treatment options for treating eczema. To reduce the itching, steroidal creams can be prescribed, or antibiotics can be used if an infection is present. Depending on the particular case, other medications may be advised, or phototherapy or other treatment procedures can be used.
