Eczema (or Atopic Dermatitis) is a very common skin condition which is often associated with other atopic diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis (hay fever).
Dermatologists are able to offer a wide range of treatments for stubborn dermatitis. We treat people of all ages with this condition including babies and the elderly.
Your treatment may include alterations in your skin care and lifestyle, prescription creams, further investigations such as blood tests or allergy testing, phototherapy and sometimes oral medications may be required. Treatment plans are tailored to be as safe, practical and easy to follow as possible.
If you are struggling to control your flare ups then ask your GP for a referral to see what could be improved in your management plan.
Melbourne City Dermatology makes urgent referrals available for severe flare ups of your eczema – you will need to visit your GP who can download our urgent referral form which then can be faxed directly to our clinic.
