Washington Dermatology Center: Where advanced tech meets tailored care
While common, eczema remains an enigmatic condition. Genes, immune system function, and environmental and bacterial factors are thought to play a role. Eczema, has eight distinct forms. The specialized expertise of Dr. Prussick and his clinical team accurately identify your specific needs, applying this knowledge to develop an effective treatment plan.
The most common type of eczema, atopic dermatitis, is characterized by itching, peeling, flaky, and red skin. Washington Dermatology Center’s specialists may recommend:
- Lifestyle modifications, such as avoidance of irritating soaps; dust mites, animal dander, and other allergens; and synthetic fibers.
- Prescription creams and medications to control itching, repair skin, fight infection, and manage inflammation if problems persist.
If you haven’t had contact dermatitis, you’ll likely develop it at some point. When skin contacts irritants or allergens like latex or poison oak, telltale blisters, cracking, burning, and stinging arise. Unlike its atopic counterpart, contact dermatitis isn’t chronic, and triggers may be avoided. If symptoms are severe, or you develop an infection, your doctor can prescribe antibiotics or steroids.
Known as dandruff or “cradle cap” in infants, seborrheic dermatitis is characterized by intense scalp dryness and flaking. Nummular eczema is a common condition featuring persistent disc-shaped, ringworm-like inflammation. You may also suffer from other types of eczema, including neurodermatitis and stasis dermatitis.
