Red and itchy skin is never fun. It’s a relief to know that reducing symptoms of eczema is possible through advanced skincare treatments and dermatological procedures. Relieving and reducing the symptoms of eczema begins with a well-rounded understanding of your unique skin type, conditions, and skincare needs.
What is Eczema?
Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a chronic skin condition that causes affected areas to become red, itchy, flaky, or irritated. About 230 million people across the globe are affected by eczema symptoms. For most patients with eczema, flare-ups are long-lasting. The chronic nature of eczema means that patients will have recurring symptoms that do not go away without medical intervention or treatment.
Signs and symptoms of eczema vary from person to person and depend on your individual skin type and condition. Some common symptoms include:
- Dry and itchy skin
- Red or hyperpigmented patches of skin
- Small, raised bumps
- Thickened skin
- Scaly skin and dry patches
- Raw skin that is swollen or sensitive to the touch
Atopic dermatitis is caused by a gene variation (genetic) that occurs naturally in the dermis. The variation associated with eczema prevents the skin from retaining moisture and protecting against bacteria and allergens or irritants.

Sign and symptoms of eczema
Red patches of skin often appear on the hands, feet, chest, neck, eyelids, and inside the elbows. For many patients, itchiness becomes more severe at night. In addition, eczema skin bumps sometimes contain pus or fluid that create scabs when scratched excessively. It may be easier said than done, but if you notice signs of eczema, it’s essential to abstain from scratching as scarring can occur.
Who gets eczema
Symptoms of eczema are most common in young children, affecting approximately 20% of children. However, symptoms and signs of atopic dermatitis can occur in patients of all ages. Those who developed eczema before the age of five may still see periodic flare-ups as they age.
Eczema can be connected to patients with hay fever, seasonal allergies, asthma, or food allergies. Unfortunately, eczema can also precede more severe skin infections, so early intervention and help from a skin specialist are essential!
At home eczema care
Following your skincare consultation, our MD or skin specialist may also recommend at-home care for eczema symptoms, such as avoiding irritants and triggers of flare-ups. Many patients find it helpful to avoid harsh soaps and to keep skin clean and moisturized.
Reducing the appearance of scars
Eczema can cause scarring to the skin. At New Age Spa, we offer a variety of skincare treatments and facials to help minimize the appearance of scarring and scar tissue on the face, hands, and body.
