Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates offers eczema treatments to patients living in Fairfax, Washington DC, Arlington, Annandale, VA, and surrounding cities to help them improve their quality of life.
What is Eczema Treatment?
Eczema is a skin condition that is characterized by itchy rashes that often appear on the arms and behind the knees. Eczema is often seen in infants, but is common in all age groups. Although eczema poses no serious threats to your health, the itching and unpredictable flare-ups can lead many to pursue treatment. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates, we help our patients manage their eczema symptoms by developing personalized skin care regimens built around their unique skin care needs. We also offer barrier skin repair cream to help protect the skin from potential irritants, as well as prescription medications to relieve symptoms.
How Much Does Eczema Treatment Cost?
The cost of your eczema treatment at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates can vary, and may be covered by health insurance. If this is the case, we will determine your coverage during your consultation in order to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. In an effort to keep our treatments accessible, we are proud to accept CareCredit® financing in addition to traditional payment methods.
What is Atopic Dermatitis?
Atopic dermatitis is one of two kinds of eczema. It is the more severe form of eczema. Atopic dermatitis is a chronic condition, meaning that it cannot be cured. Fortunately, treating atopic dermatitis can help manage symptoms and minimize flare-ups. Since it is often unclear what causes flare-ups, patients may benefit most from prescription medications based on their symptoms.
What is Contact Dermatitis?
Contact dermatitis is a form of eczema that is caused by a specific irritant. Exposure to some metals, cosmetic products, and chemicals will cause a rash to develop, causing the skin to feel itchy and irritated. The best way to treat contact dermatitis is by isolating the irritant that triggers the rash. Then, patients should be able to avoid the irritant to eliminate symptoms. If this does not work, prescription medications or other treatment methods may be necessary.
