What is Eczema?

Though millions of adults and children in America are suffering from eczema, many people inadvertently believe it is just dry skin or it only affects babies or it is contagious. Many people do not realize that the symptoms of eczema and effects go far beyond the skin layer. So that’s why they do not visit a dermatologist or an eczema specialist and things get worse.

Let’s see what eczema is?

Also known as atopic dermatitis, Eczema is not a single disease but a term used to describe a group of skin conditions that lead to itchy, inflamed, and red skin. It’s a common complaint, but eczema is also a manageable condition that can improve under the care of a skilled dermatologist.

Our experienced dermatologist believes that the first step in finding the right eczema treatment plan is determining which type of eczema you have.

Atopic dermatitis is the most common form of eczema. Additional types include:

  • Contact dermatitis
  • Nummular eczema
  • Seborrheic dermatitis
  • Stasis dermatitis
  • Dyshidrotic eczema

How do you know if you have Eczema?

Eczema has a particular set of symptoms, so our Eczema Specialist in Lansing and Mt. Pleasant can easily diagnose by examining your skin and discussing your medical history.

If you have the following, they might be signs of eczema:

  • Severely dry skin
  • Cracked, thick, or scaly skin
  • Red or brownish-gray patches
  • Severe Itching especially at night
  • Sensitive or raw skin may be from scratching

Eczema usually occurs on your feet and ankles, hands and arms, and chest. However, you can develop eczema anywhere on your body.

If any of the symptoms match your condition, consult our Dermatologist today!

What causes eczema?

Scientists have not yet determined the exact cause of eczema, but it appears that a combination of genetic and environmental factors is involved. It is clear, however, that eczema is not contagious, so it’s not possible to catch it from another person.

Our Eczema Specialist, Dr, Saif Fatteh, MD of Lansing Podiatry & Dermatology suggests that one of the most powerful steps you can take to manage your eczema is to identify your triggers and take care to avoid them whenever possible. Everyone has a unique experience with eczema, but some common triggers include:

  • Harsh soaps, shampoos, detergents, or disinfectants
  • Very hot or cold weather, high or low humidity
  • Stress
  • Hormonal fluctuations in females, especially during pregnancy or menstruation
  • Dust mites, pet dander, mold, dandruff, or pollen
  • Certain foods like dairy, nuts, seeds, soy, wheat, or eggs
  • Certain bacteria, viruses, and fungi

Learning to recognize the things that cause your eczema to flare up takes time and patience. It includes at length discussion with your Eczema Dermatologist, formulation treatment plans, and counseling.

While this may all seem little unsettling initially and certainly frustrating, but these conditions help to manage eczema successfully.

Safe Health PC is outstanding! I visited there with challenging and old acne that was not getting cured! I tried many other skin doctors in Lansing and their medications did not work at all. In fact my acne got even worse. Their treatment was very effective and my acnes start reducing. My skin is looking great again. Their prices are very reasonable for the amazing care I got!

I would definitely recommend Dr. Fatteh. I got my Botox treatment done from him and it was perfect. He gave me all the information regarding the procedure. He himself did the procedure and was confident with it. My skin looks younger now and wrinkles are gone. I am definitely looking forward to my next sitting.
