Eczema

Is your skin dry with red, itchy areas? You may have eczema. Eczema can occur at any age and may be a result of genetics, dry skin, skin irritation, poor circulation or many other reasons. Childhood eczema is known as Atopic Dermatitis and requires diligent care of the skin. Your dermatologist will examine your eczema and help determine the possible cause and develop a comprehensive care plan to improve your scaly patches.
