Over 30 million people suffer from eczema, a painful skin condition that can result in itchiness, rashes and inflammation, often all over the body. Of course, knowing a bunch of other people are suffering from eczema too doesn’t do much to make your own symptoms any less miserable. Thankfully, with the right approach, eczema treatment can minimize or eliminate the symptoms of eczema.*
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Lynn Klein works hard alongside with her team at Aesthetic Dermatology in Bala Cynwyd to create customized treatment plans for men, women and children with eczema.

How Eczema Treatment Works
Eczema is often diagnosed in babies or young children, and symptoms can taper off as the child grows. Others may suffer from the symptoms of eczema well into adulthood. People with eczema often get caught in an itch-scratch cycle. The skin itches intensely, but scratching the skin worsens the rash, causing more inflammation and itching.
Atopic dermatitis, the most common kind of eczema, is an itchy, red rash that can appear all over the body. Eczema treatments can reduce inflammation, soothe itching and prevent future flare-ups. Many people find over-the-counter medications just don’t do the trick.
Our team can prescribe stronger medications such as corticosteroids, antihistamines, antibiotics and immunomodulators to relieve the painful symptoms of eczema. We can also recommend adjusting skin care and lifestyle habits, such as taking lukewarm baths and showers, moisturizing with certain products or using a humidifier, all of which can help minimize and prevent flare-ups.*
What to Expect from Your Eczema Treatment
Successful eczema treatment starts out by scheduling a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During your consultation, your dermatologist will evaluate your eczema symptoms and determine the best course of action for your needs.
Treatment typically involves a good amount of patient education, since understanding your triggers is one of the most essential parts of living with eczema. Eczema treatment can also involve learning to cope with stress to avoid flare-ups caused by stressful situations. If medications are prescribed, you’ll learn how to take your medications and about any potential side effects. Finally, your dermatologist may recommend special skincare products that can minimize your eczema symptoms.*
Our dermatologists will stand by you every step of the way as you explore your options for treating eczema. If you have any questions or experience any adverse reactions, contact our office for a follow-up evaluation.
