Allergies and Inflammation Treatment In Florida
Eczema is one of the most common skin conditions that we treat. Eczema causes red, itchy rashes to form on a person’s skin. It is usually caused by an allergen or another type of skin irritant. Treating eczema involves prescribing a topical treatment to relieve itching and redness, as well as investigating a person’s life to determine what is triggering the condition.
Hives and Rashes
Eczema is just one common type of skin rash. Other rashes, such as hives, can happen for a variety of reasons. Hives can be caused by a stress reaction, allergy, or skin irritant. It is important to determine the cause of hives, as they can sometimes be the sign of a serious allergy. Your doctor can treat your hives or other rashes and also help you find their root cause.
Infections of the Skin
Skin infections can be caused by bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Lice and small mites (which cause scabies) are also the source of some skin infections. Infections can be contagious and can also cause a lot of physical discomfort. It is important to get a skin infection diagnosed and treated as early as possible.
Treating Sensitive Skin
Allergies and inflammation can also cause sensitive skin. Unfortunately, a lot of commonly used products can irritate sensitive skin. A dermatologist can help you identify your sensitive skin triggers and find products that keep your skin clear and comfortable. They can also help you determine if your rash or itchy skin is being caused by a sensitivity or something more serious.
