Conventional Treatments

In spite of our best preventive efforts eczema flares can worsen and require medical treatment. Typical treatment to eczema includes topical steroids and the more recent non-steroidal medications.

Topical steroids can range from over the counter hydrocortisone creams (anti-itch lotions) which are mild and can be easily applied on the face and other affected areas to a more potent steroid variety which require proper prescription.

Non-steroid medications are the latest in eczema treatment having more than 80% success rate. This new class of skin medication is called topical immunomodulators (TIMs). While this treatment does not have as immediate an effect as the steroidal variety, this treatment is found to be far safer with much less side effects than its steroidal counterpart.

In moderately serious cases of eczema flares in patients above 12 years of age, Phototherapy and Photo chemotherapy are also considered as treatment options.

Phototherapy involves treatment with ultraviolet rays in moderate eczema cases.

When phototherapy alone is found to be ineffective, it is combined with a drug called psoralen. This treatment is termed as Photo chemotherapy.

Random Useful Tip:
Epinephrine shot
If you are known to have a severe anaphylactic reaction, carry an epinephrine (adrenaline) shot with you at all times. Pay attention to expiration date and replace it regularly: upon expiration, it loses its effectiveness.

Random Drug Info:
Acyclovir
Acyclovir is a medication that is used to treat herpes infections of the skin, lips and genitals, chicken pox and shingles. It comes in the form of ointments, tablets, capsules or liquids. It relieves pain and itchiness and promotes healing; however, it does not cure the condition. Possible (but not common) side effects include headaches, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Severe side effects, such as severe rash or itching, blood in the urine, stomach pain or fever are even less common, but require prompt medical attention.
