Eczema Management

Eczema Management

Postby arshed.tsp » Tue Jun 25, 2019 6:25 pm

31.6 million people (10.1% of the population) in the U.S. have some form of eczema of which 18 million are adults and 9.6 million are children (under the age of 18) as per research by national eczema. Eczema treatment needs to be managed and even before that it is very important to track the triggers and flares so that necessary precautions can be taken and certain care plan can be followed.

Patients suffering from atopic dermatitis usually wonder about what causes their Eczema flareups. The traditional method has been to keep a physical record of suspected triggers and flareups. This manual process is cumbersome, unreliable and error-prone.

Instead, one can use a mobile application that is crafted especially for Eczema. One such App is Eczemaless ( https://eczemaless.com/redirect2app ) which automatically records the most common weather triggers such as pollen, humidity, etc. Users can log suspected food triggers through the intuitive user interface. The app comes pre-populated with the most common triggers. Users can add custom triggers. Users are prompted to upload their care regimens and track adherence to the regimen. A relationship between the regimen and flareups can be seen in the reports.

Eczema is a generalized term that encompasses various inflammatory skin conditions. It is used synonymously with the term "Dermatitis" which means superficial inflammation of the skin (epidermis) that can be acute, chronic and recurring; can have a number of causes. Atopic dermatitis is another term used to define eczema.

Eczema is an inflammation of the skin which is characterised by dryness, flakiness, heat and, probably most importantly, itching. Eczema can occur on just about any part of the body; however, in infants, eczema typically occurs on the forehead, cheeks, forearms, legs, scalp, and neck. Affected areas usually appear very dry, thickened, or scaly. There may be some amount of hyperpigmentation of the affected parts. In children and adults, eczema typically occurs on the face, neck, and the insides of the elbows, knees, and ankles. In some people, the itchy rash can produce an oozing and crusting. In others, the condition may appear more scaly, dry, and red. Chronic scratching causes the skin to take on a leathery texture because the skin has thickened (lichenification)

Duration of Eczema treatment:

The total length of treatment varies from case to case, depending on the following factors:

Duration of Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)
Areas affected
Extent of spread
Previous medication (Extensive use of oral or local cortisone)
One may expect a definite change in about three to five months, depending on the extent. The total length of medication may be anything between six months to one years or longer.
