What Causes Eczema?

Eczema is caused by a gene variation that prevents the skin’s ability to maintain necessary moisture for protection from harmful debris and outside invaders such as bacteria that can easily infect the skin. It is a condition that acts closely to an allergic reaction because it typically appears as red and rash-like patches. The affected area may even experience blisters filled with fluid. Breakouts are sporadic and may appear in plaques. Eczema can develop at any age, and currently affects many people

Treatments for Eczema

The main goal of treatment is to control the uncomfortable symptoms. Treatments used to manage eczema include:


Eczema meds can help to alleviate symptoms, as well as allow for your skin to heal. You will need to consult with a medical professional regarding the right prescription for you because medications don’t guarantee the same results for every patient.


Specialized creams, solutions, foams, and ointments can help to quickly reduce inflammation, as well as alleviate itching. Strengths and types vary depending on your specific rash severity.


Moderate to severe eczema can be managed with UV rays that prevent the immune system from overreacting.


Ways to manage your eczema at home can be to take a warm bath. Hot water can dry out the skin, and a cleanser should be used instead of soap. After baths, make sure to immediately apply moisturizers to your skin. The moisturizer should be fragrance-free to avoid irritation.

Knowing your eczema triggers is important for properly managing it. Pollen, dust, and mold are all factors that can cause eczema flare-ups. Avoiding these can help you avoid symptoms of discomfort.

Stress is another surprising factor that can cause flare-ups. Keeping your stress levels low is essential for your skin and overall health.

“I have used Dr. Greenberg medi spa for years now, his skin care line is amazing, it is Definatly the best skin products on the market (and believe me, I tried them all). The staff in the medi spa is terrific. I love going there, I do nothing but laugh with them and they make me feel like family there. Truly love them. As for Dr. Greenberg, I used him for my nose job about 6 months ago. OMG, I am in love! My nose looks perfect and I get so many compliments. He is a wonderful, kind and patient doctor that made me feel comfortable. I had very little bruising and swelling. The pain was minimal and in a few days I felt good now 6 months later I look and feel amazing. Dr Greenberg takes his time answering all my questions and put me at ease. I will go back to him for any procedures needed, but for now I am his biggest medi spa fan!!!!”
