Minneapolis Eczema Treatment:
Eczema manifests as sensitive skin with rough, red, and scaly dry patches. The main symptom of eczema is severe itching. When eczema begins in childhood, it is a genetic condition called “atopic dermatitis” (see above).
When eczema occurs on the hands and feet it can look like little blisters that then peel – this form is known as dyshidrotic eczema. Another common form of eczema is known as contact dermatitis. This occurs due to an allergy – typically to a fragrance, preservative, metal, or other strong chemical – and can appear as a well circumscribed area on the skin. Yet another common form of eczema is nummular dermatitis – or “coin” shaped itchy spots.
Dr. Tareen believes not only in eczema treatment, but finding the cause. Often eczema can be attributed to a contact allergy. Dr. Tareen provides extensive patch testing – a type of allergy testing only performed by select dermatologists – to find the culprit of your eczema. If you are looking for eczema treatment and are located in the Minneapolis area, please call Tareen Dermatology today.
