Eczema Treatment & Management

DTAP Clinic (Caring & Treating Since 2005)

For many people, eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a long-lasting (chronic) medical problem characterised by periodic flare-ups and relative remission in between. Severe cases can often lead to poor quality of life due to ongoing symptoms. There is currently no cure for eczema. Regular skincare and avoidance of triggers are paramount to prevent acute flares. The main aim of medical treatment is to control symptoms.


What is Eczema?

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a condition that makes your skin itchy and red.  It occurs often in people who have allergies and other associated conditions like asthma and hay fever.  It is a relatively common, non-contagious skin disorder in both children and adults and tends to run in families.
