What Is Eczema?
Eczema is a term for a series of skin conditions that are brought on by several allergic reactions or occasionally from the human body's reaction to a weak immune system. The outcome may cause inflammation of the skin, redness, and itchy patches very similar to dermatitis. Oftentimes, the redness itself is merely dermatitis. This may occur anywhere on your body, including the hands, neck, face, or other places. Atopic dermatitis is the most common type and is generally the consequence of an allergic response. This condition normally starts in youth. At Desert Sage Dermatology in Scottsdale, AZ, founder and board-certified nurse practitioner Megan Ahmed will help diagnose exactly what is causing the outbreak so she can prescribe an accurate treatment program to give you clear and calmer skin.
Treatment Options for Eczema and Pain Relief
Eczema can be treated with an assortment of prescribed or over-the-counter medications and lotions. Hydrocortisone creams and ointments can be used, as well as antihistamines, like Benadryl, to help alleviate symptoms. Prescription medications, like steroid creams or immunomodulators, may assist if you have severe eczema. A corticosteroid or oral steroid might also be prescribed. In extreme instances, ultraviolet light treatment or laser therapy may also be used on the affected regions. When other therapies have failed, immunosuppressants could be prescribed as these medications suppress the immune system.
Desert Sage Dermatology Reviews
I had the absolute best experience with Megan. She is so knowledgeable & approached my skin concerns from all angles. I loved how educational the visit was & her approach for my specific needs. Get in for a consultation, you won’t regret it.
Megan was by far the best derm I've ever seen. She was informative- really helped me understand options for skincare and hair loss. She listened to my concerns patiently. Had some some good recommendations in various price ranges for skincare.
I've been treated by Megan for over one year now and she is fantastic. She takes the time to discuss treatment options with you, gives honest feedback about products, and is very skilled in both medical and cosmetic dermatology. I've also gotten Vivace and botox by her and she has done an excellent job. Highly recommend!
Megan is the best derm I have been to. She gets you in and out, you never wait more than 5-10 mins. She’s very knowledgeable and knows how to relate. Megan is super easy to talk to and you can get into to see her within the week. She’s wonderful. Would highly recommend. My skin was horrible and now it’s just about flawless.
Great people and quick- no waiting.
