Eczema in Palm Beach Gardens & Stuart, FL

What Causes Eczema?

Eczema, also called atopic dermatitis, is a condition that causes dry, itchy and inflamed rashes to develop on the skin. These symptoms most often appear on the arms and legs, but can develop anywhere on the body. Although children are most commonly affected, eczema affects all age groups and is a chronic condition that flares up intermittently. Eczema flare ups can have many causes, including:

  • Stress
  • Dry skin
  • Irritants that come in contact with the skin

How is Eczema Treated?

Eczema cannot be cured, so treatment is focused on managing symptoms of eczema and preventing flare ups. In most cases, patients who can identify what triggers their flare ups can make great progress by avoiding those triggers. Other treatment strategies include keeping the skin moisturized and using topical medications to manage symptoms.

How Much Does Eczema Treatment Cost?

The cost of eczema treatment at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the strategies involved and the extent of treatment needed. In most cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and assess your insurance coverage to determine the exact cost of treatment that you will be responsible for.
