DermTV How to Treat Eczema DermTV Epi 178
Music Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Hello, I am Dr. Neal Schultz, and welcome to DermTV. The real eczema is called atopic dermatitis and we discussed that in another episode. Today, I am going to give you some at home tips on how to control and manage your atopic dermatitis. The most important symptom that people with this type of eczema have is incessant itching it drives them crazy. When you examine them, you can see scratch marks, especially in the front of the elbow and.
Behind the knee. And the peculiar thing is while the scratching helps to relieve the itching, it makes it worse, because the more you scratch, the more you further irritate the skin, and the more irritated it gets the more it itches. So, you are essentially in an itchscratch loop, and you have got to break that loop. The best way to do it, unfortunately, is not with the oral antihistamines they really do not work very well. And if you use heat to stop the itching, while it feels wonderful for a few minutes, it.
Causes a rebound increase in itching afterwards, so do not use hot water in a shower to stop your itching. The best way to do it is with either cold water or with menthol. With cold water or even better ice cubes, just gently run over the area it stops the itching immediately without doing any damage. Menthol and mentholated moisturizers like Sarna lotion, SAR NA, are very good because the menthol causes a cooling sensation and it fools your brain. It fools your brain into forgetting about the itching and.
All you feel is cooling, and the cooling is much less noxious. One other tip for stopping the itching is just pressure. Rather than scratching, just squeeze the area, but very tightly and firmly, and that can also stop the itching. The next issue that you have to deal with is infection because all of that scratching caused little breaks in the skin and those little breaks create little valleys where bacteria can hide, and also all the inflamed skin is all flaky and scaly and bacteria just love to use that for.
Nutrients and to live there. Whether those bacteria are causing an actual infection, whether they are just living there and making their metabolic byproducts which themselves are irritating to your atopic skin and further causing more itching, you have to stop the bacteria. And that is easily done with overthecounter antibiotic ointments like bacitracin or Polysporin. We try not to use antibiotics topically that contain neomycin only because the neomycin sometimes causes further sensitization and itching. The next step is to deal with the actual inflammation of the rash and that is best done with just overthecounter cortisones, 0.5 or 1.
Percent hydrocortisone, better in an ointment vehicle than in a cream because the skin is so dry. And that brings us to the last part which is the dryness, the flakiness and scaliness. Two ways to approach that either with occlusive moisturizers like Vaseline, petrolatum, or Aquaphor or else by replacing the lost surface lipids. Lipids are fats, and in this very inflamed skin, the fats that hold these normal cells together is missing. So, we try to use moisturizers that contain ceramides, and ceramides are lipids that need to be restored to the surface of the skin. An example of.
An overthecounter product containing ceramides is Atopalm, ATOPALM, available in pharmacies without a prescription. If all of these measures do not succeed in giving you some relief from your itching and from the eczema, then of course your are going to see your dermatologist who will either give you prescription strength cortisone, oral antibiotics or topical immunomodulators like Elidel or Protopic, all of which at prescription strength will surely bring your eczema under control. Please join me again at DermTv. If you have a question, please send it to me by visiting DermTvquestion. I am Dr. Neal Schultz, and thank you for.

Child Care Development Eczema Soy Based Formula
Hi. I’m Dr. David Hill and today we’re going to be talking about the possible relationship between eczema and soy based formula. What is eczema Eczema is an itchy, scaly, bumpy allergy of the skin that is also exacerbated by dryness or the loss of moisture and oil from the skin. Because eczema is partly due to allergies, some people are concerned that allergy causing foods, including soy protein, could make eczema worse. That may happen occasionally, but it’s not very common. Even in children who have eczema and are on soy formula, only.
About four percent to five percent show a true allergy to the soy formula, meaning the other ninetyfive percent have eczema for some other reason. Likewise, if you take all children who are getting soy formula, only about one percent of them will end up with an allergic reaction due to the formula. That’s about one third as many as you’ll see who are taking milk protein formula. On the other hand, soy formula does not protect children from allergies the way feeding human breast milk does. It doesn’t even protect them from.
Later developing milk protein allergies, even if they’re exposed first to the soy protein and only later to the milk protein. To review, eczema is an allergic disease of the skin exacerbated by dryness or loss of the skin oils. While soy protein can lead to a variety of allergic reactions, that’s quite rare and only accounts for about four to five percent of eczema in babies who are fed soy formula and have eczema. Soy doesn’t protect babies as well as human breast milk against developing allergic disease, and it’s not quite as allergenic.

Helping Kids with Severe Eczema
Severe eczema is an allergic disease that can rob a child of a normal life. Constant itching makes sleep nearly impossible, infections are common, and even breaking a sweat can make the condition worse. Josh Milner and Kelly Stone, physician scientists at the National Institutes of Health, or NIH, study people with severe eczema to better understand, prevent, and treat the disease. Most of the patients who we see are basically desperate. They’ve been to multiple, multiple different physicians. They are often covered, to some extent to another, from head to toe with.
Itchiness, heavy rash in certain areas over their skin, weeping rashes, bleeding rashes that leave blood on their sheets every single night. Many of these patients literally have not gotten a good night’s sleep from the day that they were born. Kids with severe eczema come to NIH for evaluation and may receive wet wrap therapy, which includes three baths a day. Here, Shannon Dougherty covers her 6yearold son Logan with wet towels to keep his skin moist. Each bath is followed by an application of topical medicine and moisturizer that is sealed in with wet cloths.
I have never seen his skin this clear, except maybe at birth. It’s always been red and itchy and flaky and just he’s been a miserable child, and his personality has changed as well in these past three days. He’s happy. He’s smiling. He gets up and dances and tells jokes and just, you know, the kid that I’ve really been missing. NIH researchers have found that wrap therapy combined with education on daily skin care can lead to rapid and longlasting improvements in eczema. Logan’s skin has almost cleared, and his mom will receive an action plan to address any.
Flareups after they leave NIH. What we’re teaching them to do is to control those flares at home. But by getting the disease under control with the wet wrap therapy, we’re able to maintain that control much better. Wet wrap therapy and home skin care also changed the lives of the Allen twins, Nicole and Tony, who came to NIH with severe eczema from head to toe. Their skin improved dramatically after two weeks of wrap therapy. To show their gratitude, they made the team a scrapbook of their remarkable progress.
How to Treat Facial Eczema DermTV Epi 479
Eczema is uncomfortable and unsightly. But here’s the good news if moisturizers and cortisone creams aren’t giving you relief, help may be shockingly simple. Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause And welcome to DermTV. The name Eczema just sounds uncomfortable And it is. It’s not exactly an onomatopoeia, but it’s cacaphony tells you it’s not something you want. Eczema’s most immediate impact is discomfort, whether it’s itching or burning or both, and even worse for many people, are the unsightly patches of redness, flaking and even crusting which, when on the face, just don’t cover well with makeup.
Eczema is often persistent, but when it does go away, just to make matters a little worse, it tends to be recurrent and come back for no apparent reason. While eczema can be anywhere on the body, it’s the visual impact of the patches of facial eczema that’s usually the deal breaker. Your first reaction is usually to use a moisturizer because of the flakes, because most people think of flaky skin as being caused by dryness. But flaky skin is actually the result of many other skin problems such as inflammation or infection, which together or individually,.
Cause the flaking in eczema. And since moisturizers don’t help either of those problems, they don’t help your eczema. Then it’s onto cortisone creams, readily available over the counter, as well as stronger ones by prescription. If the cause of the flaking, redness and discomfort is inflammation, then the antiinflammatory powers of the cortisone cream will provide meaningful relief for your eczema. But so often cortisone creams don’t work because hidden in the redness and flaking and crusting is an invisible and mischievous infection. That infection is usually caused by familiar germs like staph or strep bacteria.
But here’s the twist. Through a positive feedback mechanism, the bacteria make the eczema worse, so unless you treat the infection with an antibiotic, the eczema won’t get better. So to finally control your eczema, in addition to the cortisone cream, a topical antibiotic ointment applied to the eczema at least four times per day is essential and often works magic. My favorites are Bacitracin and Polysporin ointment, both of which are available without prescriptions. Your take away for treating persistent eczema anywhere on the body should be to use topical antibiotics in addition to cortisone creams.
