Symptoms Of Eczema (Dermatitis)

Itchy skin is almost always a symptom of eczema. Other symptoms of eczema may include:

  • Dryness

    Eczema can make your skin very dry, sensitive, and prone to cracking.

  • Rough And Leathery Skin

    Constant scratching can lead to rough, thickened skin.

  • Oozing And Crusting Blisters

    Blisters that ooze and crust can form in areas where the skin bends (inside your elbow, behind your knees, or on the front of your neck).

  • Inflamed And Discolored Skin

    It may appear as a red rash or scaly patches on swollen skin that vary in color depending on your skin color.

Treatment Options For Eczema (Dermatitis)

Once you’ve been diagnosed with eczema, your doctor will likely recommend a combination of treatments. Here are some eczema treatment options in Singapore:

  • Steroid-containing creams or ointments

    These are applied topically to relieve itching and inflammation. They are available in different strengths or “potency”. A dermatologist will prescribe which steroid will best suit you.

  • Emollients

    Emollients are medical moisturizers that come in different forms– creams, lotions, ointments, gels, and sprays. This type of product helps soothe dry, flaky skin and can also reduce the itch.

  • Antihistamines

    Both oral and topical forms can be used to help relieve itchiness.

  • Phototherapy

    This involves exposing the skin to controlled amounts of natural or artificial light to help reduce symptoms.

  • Immunosuppressants

    Immunosuppressants are drugs that help lower the activity of the immune system and are typically only used in severe cases that don’t respond to other treatments.
