What are the causes of Eczema?

There are several factors causing eczema-like:

  • Immune System: Your immune system is one of the major causes of eczema. When a trigger attacks your body, your immune system treats it like a foreign invader and hence as a part of the defence mechanism, it starts causing inflammation in the body leading to eczema.
  • Genes: If you have a family history of eczema, then you are also at a high risk of getting eczema. Genetic mutation is also a reason that causes your skin barrier function to not work as it should. 
  • Environment: There are many things in the environment as well like smoke, air pollutants, harsh fabrics and soaps that can cause the skin to become dry and itchy. Change in humidity can also lead to itchiness and make eczema even worse.

Do you think you too are suffering from eczema-Know the symptoms

The symptoms of eczema in a person vary depending on the severity of the disease in a person. The most common symptoms of eczema in an individual include:

  • Itchy skin
  • Scaly skin
  • Cracks in the skin
  • Discolouration in the affected area
  • Small bumps that release fluid
  • Intense itching 
  • Swelling on skin

While eczema can show anywhere on the skin, the most common places where it appears are the hands, neck, elbows knees, feet, ankles, lips and ears. 

How badly eczema hurts and what triggers it?

As such the skin condition does not hurt, but if you scratch your skin it can break the surface of the skin and cause a sore which can be extremely painful. This skin disease can be extremely painful for those who are suffering from its severe form. The most common triggers of eczema include:

  • Fabrics and clothing 
  • Harsh soaps and detergents
  • Dry weather
  • Smoke and pollutants
  • Stress
  • Makeup or other skin care products

How do we diagnose Eczema at AISHH?

An eczema diagnosis involves a physical exam, medical history, and maybe a skin biopsy. If you have flare-ups, our dermatologist will examine the affected areas of your skin and ask you about your symptoms.

Dr Indu Kumari might recommend a skin biopsy to rule out other skin conditions that have similar symptoms. In a skin biopsy, a small sample of skin is removed and examined under a microscope to figure out what’s wrong.

At AISHH, we try to provide the right diagnosis to our patients so that we can devise the right treatment plan for them. 

How to treat Eczema-Get the best treatment only at AISHH

The approach to treating eczema is different for every person. Its severity is different in each person and what treatment plan may work for one might not work for other. Effective treatment for eczema could include:

  • Moisturizers: Use gentle moisturizers throughout the day if you are suffering form dry skin. Apply moisturizer after your shower or bath. 
  • Topical creams and ointments: This is the first-line treatment option for those suffering from eczema. These ointments are applied directly on the areas that have inflammation and redness. Examples of topical ointments and creams include calcineurin inhibitors, corticosteroids and PDE4 inhibitors.
  • Oral Medications: Oral medications come under the second line of treatment and are given to those who have a severe form of eczema. These are given when topical ointments and creams do not show any effect on people. Under oral medications, people are generally prescribed corticosteroids, methotrexate and cyclosporine. 
  • Phototherapy: Also known as light therapy, light therapy exposes the skin to ultraviolet light. In conjunction with topical creams or oral medications, it can reduce inflammation and itchiness.
  • Wet wraps: Apply a wet dressing over the affected area to soothe it and reduce inflammation. Typically, wet wraps are used in conjunction with topical creams or oral medications for moderate to severe eczema.

After a proper and detailed consultation with Dr Indu Kumari, she recommends a detailed treatment plan for eczema. Along with the other therapies she may prescribe a good skincare routine and lifestyle changes to keep eczema under control. With the right treatment and management plan, you can effectively manage your eczema symptoms and enjoy clear, healthy skin.

Who is an ideal candidate for the treatment?

A person who has been diagnosed with atopic dermatitis becomes an ideal candidate for the treatment. If the symptoms of the disease start interfering with day-to-day activities, then it is the right time to take treatment from an experienced doctor. Also, an ideal candidate is someone who is willing to work closely with the doctor and develops a personally curated treatment plan that works for him. This involves trying different treatment options, making lifestyle changes and also taking the medicines as prescribed. 

When will you start seeing the results of the treatment?

The timeline for eczema treatment can vary depending on the severity of the condition, the type of treatment used, and your age, skin type, and overall health. The results of eczema treatment usually start showing up after a few days to a few weeks.

  • Topical treatments, like creams and ointments, can show results within a week. By reducing inflammation, itching, and redness of the skin, these treatments can improve skin appearance and comfort. Nevertheless, it may take several weeks of consistent use to see the full benefits.
  • In some cases, oral medications, like corticosteroids or immunosuppressants, take longer to work. Medications like these reduce inflammation and suppress the immune system, which takes a few weeks. It may take several weeks or months for the results of these treatments to show.
  • Light therapy, which exposes the affected skin to ultraviolet light, can also take a few weeks to show results. Depending on the patient, eczema symptoms can get better as soon as a few sessions.

The problem with eczema is that it’s a chronic disease that can’t be cured. Eczema treatment can manage symptoms and improve skin appearance, but it’s important to keep doing it to avoid flare-ups and keep results. In addition, some patients may need ongoing treatment to manage their eczema symptoms.
