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.

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.
