Eczema and Skin Care in Pittsburgh

As the rash appears, it becomes itchy so our natural reaction is to scratch it. However in a vicious cycle, the more we scratch, the itchier it becomes until we scratch so much that the skin breaks and becomes open to infection.

Instead of scratching, apply a cold wet compress and soothing creams or lotions to help reduce the inflammation. Sometimes moisturizers available from your local pharmacy can help, but other times prescription topical medications or cortisone preparations are required.

For the more severe cases, your expert Dermatology team at the Golla Center for Dermatology may prescribe a cortisone injection or pill.

Antibiotics may also be required to treat eczema, especially if the skin has broken and become infected.
