How To: Treat Eczema with Water’s Edge Dermatology


Eczema is more of a broad term, its more of a generalized term. Eczema just means irritated, dry, itchy skin, but normally when people say eczema, what they really are talking about is a condition called atopic dermatitis which is a triad of conditions usually that has to do with skin conditions, breathing conditions, like asthma, and also
just regular allergies. Atopic dermatitis is basically the inability for the body to retain its moisture, so it’s really about moisturization and
adding moisture to the skin because you can’t keep it there yourself. A lot of people want to think that food allergies play a roll, but in reality, less than one 1% of patients actually are affected by food allergies. Taking care of yourself is always a
good thing, and trying to avoid stress because it it will worsen the condition

softeners altogether. If you have eczema or atopic dermatitis, you have a hard time holding on to those lipids. You want some moisurizers that have ceramides. Ceramides are lipids, and you’re replacing it to the skin. The best time to moisturize is right after the bath or shower, so that you still have a little bit of moisture in your skin.
