Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema is an inflammatory condition that affects millions of Americans. Drs. Dhawan and Chang provide diagnosis through a comprehensive physical evaluation and information regarding one’s family medical history. It is unknown what causes eczema to develop, though it has been determined that it is linked to the body’s immune system. Studies have shown that patients with eczema often have a family history of asthma or allergies. Eczema presents itself as an uncomfortable rash that may appear to come and go, though many factors affect flare-ups including stress and environmental triggers.

For most patients, the best treatment option is topical creams and medications. This keeps the condition from spreading and can relieve patients of the constant itching and discomfort the condition can cause. Contact dermatitis is often eliminated by removing the irritant that causes flare-ups.
