What treatment is best for eczema patients?

By

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

Review From Tiffany S.
Dr. Lupo is absolutely amazing! I saw her for botox and filler before my wedding and now I am a devotee of her work. She is a master at accomplishing a natural looking and beautiful result. She has an artist's eye and a surgeon's calm hands. She is personable, kind, and funny, and I always find myself 100% at ease in her office. It is easy to be candid with her and ask for exactly what you want. She is honest and takes the time to communicate with you to make sure you're both on the same page, and you don't feel like she is running in and out of the room and rushing off to another appointment. She gives you her full attention and it makes a world of difference. I highly recommend Dr. Lupo to all my friends and family. Wonderful woman and doctor. Couldn't be happier!
