Pediatric Eczema Treatment

Also known as ‘the itch that rashes,’ this stubborn condition is seen in all age groups but is most prevalent in children, Eczema’s red, scaly, itchy patches typically develop around the neck, eyes, and knees, but emerge anywhere on the body—especially after exposure to certain foods, fragrances, soaps, extreme temperatures, and other environmental triggers. Often infants and toddlers with eczema are uncomfortable enough to keep the entire family up at night. Our pediatric dermatologist can help you find fast relief for your child. We can help you develop strategies for avoiding triggers and create a treatment plan that will get those scaly patches under control. These days, no one should have to suffer the discomfort and embarrassment of eczema. Call for an appointment, and we’ll put together a tailored treatment plan for your child that might include:

  • Swapping in milder moisturizers and soaps
  • Shortening shower time and lowering water temperature
  • Stress-reduction techniques
  • Over-the-counter and prescription creams to heal scaly patches
  • Ultraviolet light therapy or immunosuppressant drugs for very severe cases
