Eczema is a skin condition that causes patches of itchy, inflamed skin. The patches, or plaques, often become red, rough, and cracked. It is a frustrating dermatologic condition, and because of this, you need to work with your physician. He or she will determine which severe eczema treatment in East Windsor, NJ, is right for you. Here are some eczema treatments that may help relieve your symptoms.
If you want to try natural treatments for your eczema instead of medications, you should start out with colloidal oatmeal lotion. It helps soothe irritated skin, decreases itching and scaling, and helps smooth out patches of roughness.
Another natural treatment for eczema is coconut oil, which helps treat inflammation and restores moisture to dry and irritated skin. Apply coconut oil throughout the day, after bathing, and at bedtime. Your eczema may also respond to dietary interventions. Eating foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon and tuna may help suppress systemic and local inflammation, which may relieve the itching, redness, inflammation, and irritation of eczematous plaques.
Other options for severe eczema treatment in East Windsor, NJ, include hydrocortisone ointment, which relieves itching, inflammation, and redness. Mild strengths can be purchased over-the-counter, however, stronger strengths require a prescription.
Severe eczema may not respond to lower strengths, however, higher dosages usually result in a dramatic improvement. While hydrocortisone ointment is usually well-tolerated by most people, it can cause stretch marks, skin discoloration, and thinning of your skin.
