Eczema

Eczema is a common skin complaint that affects millions of people worldwide. Categorised as a long-term chronic condition, Eczema comes in many varieties with the most common form referred to as Atopic Eczema. Other forms include Asteototic, Pompholyx/ Dishydrotic and Lichen Simplex Chronicus Eczema.

While most commonly found in children, Eczema can also develop in adults too and can be identified by the presence of skin that is red, dry, cracked and itchy. In children, the itchy characteristic can cause issues with sleeping and in all cases can cause embarrassment in regards to social situations. Scratching can also lead to the skin becoming sore, bleeding and even becoming infected. Here at Blue Tree Clinics, our dermatology team are able to treat Eczema, regardless of severity.

Causes

While the exact cause of Eczema remains largely unknown, the condition tends to appear more frequently in those who suffer from allergies. Eczema can also be triggered by environmental factors as well as stress, food, detergents, soaps and household products. Furthermore, Eczema is known to be hereditary with children born to sufferers more likely to develop the condition themselves.

Treatments

If you’re struggling with the effects of Eczema, we strongly recommend that you contact Blue Tree Clinics to set up a meeting with a member of our team. Our goal is to devise a plan for Eczema treatment in Dubai that is tailored to the patient’s needs starting with a full examination to establish the type, extent and severity of the Eczema.

Once we have concluded our initial assessment, we will create a treatment plan that consists of four key components:

  • Skin care
  • Medication
  • Learning how to cope with itching and stress
  • How to avoid triggers

Skin care is achieved through bathing and the use of moisturisers and creams such as emollients, tacrolimus and soap substitutes. Another method that we can use for Eczema treatment in Dubai is referred to as Phototherapy which is a process in which Ultraviolet Light B (UVB) is used to stem the growth of affected skin cells.

For more serious cases of life-limiting Eczema, our dermatologists are also able to prescribe systemic medication. For more information about our Eczema treatment in Dubai or to set up an appointment with one of our dermatologists, give Blue Tree Clinics a call today.
