Eczema treatment from Dermatologist in New Orleans
At the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, Dr. Mary Lupo provides solutions that are designed to achieve better skin health and appearance. There are conditions that are often troublesome to individuals such as eczema. Eczema affects up to 20 percent of infants and toddlers, and 3 percent of adults. But what exactly causes it?

What causes eczema?

Eczema is a chronic, relapsing inflammatory skin disease. Eczema often develops as flare-ups which are triggered by a variety of instances, including:
  • Extreme temperature changes
  • Rough, coarse materials against the skin
  • Animal dander
  • Changes in stress levels
  • Illnesses such as respiratory infections and colds
  • Household product exposure including soaps, perfumes, and laundry detergents

How is eczema detected?

Eczema is best characterized as a rash on the skin. It is often itchy and can affect many areas of the body including the face, arms, legs, hands, and feet. It can become difficult for some patients to keep under control. While rashes may be an indication of another health issue, eczema is often easily detected and diagnosed with a visit to a Board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Mary Lupo.

Treatment options for eczema

Our trained dermatologist and medical staff work together with patients to tailor a specific treatment plan that meets their needs and helps them in healing their skin and combating future flare-ups of eczema. Conditions such as this can often be controlled with the help of a professional. Dr. Mary Lupo first diagnoses the type of eczema, then suggest therapies such as light treatments or topical prescription medications.
