Eczema and Other Rashes

Eczema and Other Rashes

Eczema usually develops as a rash and typically appears dry and discolored on the surface of our skin. Scratching often leads to redness, crusting, and scaly skin. Excessive scratching often results in more serious conditions such as skin damage, infection, and sleep loss. Eczema develops most frequently on the elbow and knees during the teenage and adult years. While patients have experienced it on the hands, feet, ankles, wrists, face, neck, and upper chest, these areas tend to be less common. There are several common types of diseases that may loosely be described as eczema, so it’s important to schedule an appointment and have us verify the condition.

What Types of Eczema Treatments Are Available in Oro Valley and Tucson, AZ?

Corticosteroid Creams or Ointments
Corticosteroid creams or ointments are commonly used to relieve people from scaling and extreme itching. Topical corticosteroid creams and ointments are available with or without a prescription but may cause harmful side effects if not used correctly. Speaking with a skin care professional at Paloma Dermatology is recommended so that we can suggest the best option for your specific needs.

Antibiotics are often used to treat bacterial infections, open sores, or cracking in the skin caused by frequent scratching. A skin care professional from Paloma Dermatology can prescribe antibiotics for a length of time based on the condition of your skin issue and your specific needs. Taking the required antibiotics for the recommended time will continue to prevent infections from reoccurring. This means longer-lasting results for you and your skin!

Oral Antihistamines
Oral antihistamines are ideal for those suffering from severe itching. Certain types of medications make you sleepy, helping not only to eliminate itching itself but also helping anyone whose sleep is affected by the continuous sensation to scratch. Finally, get a good night’s sleep and relief from scratching by taking a simple oral antihistamine.
