People suffering from the chronic symptoms of eczema have a board-certified dermatologist who can help them in West Bloomfield: Dr. David Baird. If you’re tired of recurring symptoms of dryness, irritation, inflammation, and redness that prevents you from wearing the clothes you’d like or makes you uncomfortable doing certain activities with friends, it might be time to schedule a consultation to learn more about eczema and what your treatment options are.

Eczema Symptoms

Eczema can affect different people in largely different ways and can be used with or without a proper diagnosis to describe certain characteristics of the skin. The most common symptoms presented with eczema patients are swelling, redness, buildup of excess dead skin cells or keratin that look scaly or rough, darkened pigmentation of the skin, and irritation. People can experience one or multiple symptoms during an eczema breakout and they can be related to a specific trigger substance or allergen.

As you might have guessed, the varying symptoms that present with people of varying types of eczema means there isn’t a one-size-fits-all plan that’s always right for everyone with eczema. The treatment that’s right for you needs a specific diagnosis from a dermatologist like Dr. Baird, who also considers the rest of your medical history including personal and family history with other relevant skin conditions.

Eczema Treatment Options in West Bloomfield

Depending on the severity, location, and symptoms that comprise your experience with eczema, there are multiple treatments available for people in West Bloomfield for eczema. One unique treatment offered by Dr. Baird involves the use of narrow-band UV light therapy. Unlike topical steroids or other medications that can have unsettling side effects or limited effectiveness across multiple types of eczema, UV therapy has been shown to provide symptom-free results that are fine-tuned for your skin type and concern.

The benefits of narrow-band UV therapy for eczema are many, and the completely non-invasive treatment not only breaks down problematic skin cells, but strengthens healthy ones to heal the skin from the inside out.
