Eczema Relief and Management in McKinney and Beyond
Eczema is a common skin condition that impacts thousands of Americans every year. Typified by inflamed, itchy red skin, it can be triggered by numerous factors that require personalized skin allergy treatments. Also known as atopic dermatitis, this condition can appear at any point in life. When it appears it may be sudden onset (an acute occurrence) that eventually passes. More commonly however, eczema is a chronic condition that requires persistent management to stay on top of worsening symptoms. From our offices in McKinney/Prosper & Southlake, TexasAllergyMD works under the leadership of Dr. Nana Mireku to provide exceptional care for eczema sufferers.
Best Eczema Testing and Treatment Solutions
Some people with eczema experience only a mild irritation they can easily conceal or control. Unfortunately, in other cases it will significantly impact people’s lives, limiting their ability to freely participate in certain activities. Regardless of the severity of your eczema, there are effective skin allergy treatments available that can help you take control of this condition. We offer the following services to aid in the treatment and management of eczema.
Diagnosis and Testing
The first stage in any treatment is to identify the underlying concern. For eczema, this includes determining the severity of your condition, understanding what aggravates it – and what helps it. Allergy testing is a key diagnostic tool in this process.
Topical treatments are those applied directly to the affected site. These can include moisturizers, corticosteroids, immunomodulators and other substances that reduce itchiness and inflammation. Patients respond differently to these treatments, so our team will help determine which is right for you.
Some cases of eczema respond well to one of several oral medications that range from antihistamines to antibiotics.
Phototherapy is effective in some cases of eczema. Exposing the affected area to specific wavelengths of light may reduce inflammation, and can also promote healing in some patients.
Eczema symptoms may be the result of allergies. When this occurs, allergy shots may be able to limit the severity of your symptoms – or prevent them entirely.
Dr. Mireku is dedicated to educating patients about their condition and how best to treat it. To this end we work to provide each patient with the information they need, not only to control their condition but to understand its causes as well. This empowers a person to make informed decisions about managing their eczema in conjunction with the treatments provided by TexasAllergyMD. The result – a comprehensive and practical allergy treatment that makes a lasting difference.
