What treatment is best for eczema patients?


Best Eczema treatment from expert Dermatologist in New Orleans
Patients who have been diagnosed with conditions such as eczema may be wondering the best course of treatment for their skin. Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, can become extremely bothersome for patients. It can cause red, itchy rashes all over the body that can be difficult to calm. Flare-ups can happen at the worst possible times, and are sometimes even triggered by stress. Learning more about the condition and discussing treatment options is the best way for patients to manage their eczema.

Treatment of eczema

To determine the best treatment for eczema, patients need to better understand the cause of their eczema. Some patients are just more susceptible to flare-ups than others. Flare-ups can be mild or severe. They are often caused by some of the following issues:
  • Genetics
  • Stress
  • Sweating
  • Temperature changes
  • Exposure to cigarette smoke
  • Cleansers and soaps
  • Solvents
  • Allergens
  • Infections and colds
  • Synthetic fibers against the skin
  • High sugar diets
After a board-certified dermatologist has determined the reason for eczema, treatment options are discussed.

Treatment for eczema will depend on the cause, as well as the type and severity. If eczema is caused by exposure to certain elements or materials, avoidance of these items can greatly reduce the risk of flare-ups. However, if the reason is unknown or cannot be avoided, treatment options are discussed. They may include:
  • Moisturizers
  • Specialized soaps
  • Topical prescription creams
  • Immunosuppressant medications

Reading these previous reviews I decided to weigh in - I've been seeing Dr. Lupo for 20 years now, beginning with injections to reduce my leg veins, then went on to treatments for increasingly maturing skin. I appreciate Dr. Lupo's matter of fact advice and approach. I appreciate that she never 'over does' anything so that my husband never suspects that I've had any procedure/treatment. I guess that is the main thing. Occasionally I wish she had done more, but I always look much better, and doing too little is WAY better than doing too much. I trust her advice.
