1. What is eczema (Dermatitis)?
Eczema is a skin disease caused by inflammation, making the skin itchy and rashy. People with eczema have a weak "outer skin barrier'. This damaged barrier easily loses moisture and lets irritants in, causing dry and itchy skin. Eczema most frequently appears on the face, arms, and legs, but it can show up in other areas, too. Eczema is not contagious.
2. What is Atopic dermatitis (AD)?
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is the most common type of eczema. The general term "eczema" is usually used to refer Atopic dermatitis. The word "atopic" means an allergy that is usually hereditary, and "dermatitis" is defined as inflammation of the skin.
3. What are the signs and symptoms of eczema?
Treatment is case dependent. Your detromatologist will decide the appropriate treatment required. Usually a combination of different treatment modalities is followed depending on the severity of acne and its scarring. The modalities include chemical peels, microderambrasion, derma roller and laser along with appropriate medical management.
