Eczema

Eczema (atopic dermatitis)

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a chronic or recurrent inflammatory skin disease that usually begins in the first few years of life. 

In infants, eczema usually appears as tiny bumps on the cheeks. Older children and adults often experience rashes on the knees or elbows (often in the folds of the joints), on the backs of hands, or on the scalp.

Symptoms of atopic dermatitis (eczema) include: 

  • Patches of skin that are red or brownish
  • Itchy skin, especially at night
  • Dry cracked or scaly skin

Dr. Mathuria will work with you to manage your eczema and provide a tailored treatment plan.
