What is Eczema?
Eczema is a form of long term inflammation of the outer layer of your skin. Although it is most common in children adults can also be affected by eczema. It usually involves a reoccurring rash that is characterized by the following symptoms: swelling, redness, itching, flaking, cracking, bleeding, or oozing.

How do we treat Eczema?
Depending on your particular case we may be able to alleviate the symptoms with oral antihistamines. But in most case we will prescribe you a mild cortisone ointment and increase the dosage strength if it dose not clear up the eczema. In more severe cases we will use injections of corticosteroids directly into the effected areas of your skin along with prescribing antibiotics if the skin has become infected.
