Eczemas are highly unaesthetic and bothersome skin lesions which left untreated can cause serious complications and great physical and psychological distress. People from Birmingham dealing with this skin condition, or any other skin lesions can now appeal to Renew Skin & Health Clinic’s professional dermatology treatments ensured by fully qualified private dermatologists and eczema specialists. Dr. Berth-Jones, Consultant in Dermatology at the University Hospital in Coventry has a vast experience in the field of all dermatological diseases and conditions, including eczemas, which recommends him as a highly competent professional in their treatment.

Eczemas are mainly genetic alterations in the skin’s barrier function and are usually the sign of an impaired immune system. Eczema is a term that generally stands for the diseases and conditions regarding the inflammation and irritation of the skin, which is also known as atopic dermatitis. This skin condition is very common on infants, usually clearing up by the age of 5. Nevertheless, there are people who continue to develop eczemas throughout their lives, experiencing on and off symptoms such as more or less severe itching, reddening of the skin, dry, scaly or rough patches of skin that may appear anywhere on the body, especially on the face, scalp, neck, back, hands, back of the knees or feet. In more severe situations, eczemas can even cause oozing and crusting of the affected areas, certain individuals having to deal with “flare-ups”, namely the recurrence of eczemas after long periods of time with more intense or worsened symptoms.

Eczemas can also manifest in people suffering from allergies, being triggered when the skin comes into contact with different substances or materials such as soap, detergent, perfume, jewelry, clothing, cosmetics and even sweat and dirt, being called contact eczemas.

The main step to be taken in treating or reducing the eczema skin condition is to set an accurate diagnosis, as there may be other skin lesions that resemble it. Our eczema specialist at Renew Skin & Health Clinic will perform a thorough visual skin examination and also run allergy tests to determine an exact cause of the eczemas. Once the diagnosis is set, you will be prescribed a customized eczema treatment to best suit your individual case, while also taking into account your medical history to prevent any complications or side-effects that may occur during the treatment.
