What Is Eczema?
Eczema represents a series of skin conditions that are brought on by various allergic reactions or at times from the body's response to a weak immune system. The outcome may lead to inflammation of your skin, redness, and itchy patches very similar to dermatitis. In many cases, the inflammation itself is merely dermatitis. This may occur anywhere on your body, including the hands, face, neck, or elsewhere. Atopic dermatitis is the most prevalent type and is usually the consequence of an allergic response. This condition generally starts in childhood. At Essential Dermatology Group in Bedford, TX, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Calvin Williams will strive to diagnose precisely what is causing the condition so that an accurate treatment plan can be made and carried out.
What Are the Treatment Options for Eczema?
Eczema can be treated with a variety of over-the-counter or prescribed medications, including medicated baths. Hydrocortisone ointments and creams are topical medications that can be used, as well as antihistamines, such as Benadryl, to help alleviate symptoms. Prescription medications, like immunomodulators or steroid creams, can help those with moderate to severe eczema. A corticosteroid may also be prescribed. In severe conditions, ultraviolet light treatment or laser treatment might also be used on the affected areas. When other solutions have failed, immunosuppressants could be prescribed as these drugs suppress the immune system.
Had an appointment for my 5 year old today with Dr Williams because my son has molluscum contagiosum and as soon as he saw my son he knew he had allergies asthma and eczema just by looking at him! Insane. Then he froze off the little bumps on my son and did a magic trick! I left and made an appointment for myself! 10/10 recommended.
Dr Williams is amazing patient and informative with my husbands eczema.
Dr. Williams was so nice and knowledgeable; he was a great listener and provided reasonable recommendations for treatment of my son's chronic eczema. Dr. Williams staff were so nice and welcoming. Look forward to working with them to tackle my son's skin issues.
Dr Williams is very professional and he's not about too waste your time. I've always had eczema and acne. I went in concerning some new issues that had developed after pregnancy. He's the first doctor to do a biopsy so he knows exactly what's wrong instead of guessing. My arms and face have already started to clear up after 2-3 weeks. He's one of the best!!!
Dr. Calvin Williams and his staff is wonderful. He care about his patients and is very understanding. He listens to his patients and try to do as much to accommodate them based off his knowledge and what is comfortable for the patient. His staff is very nice and friendly. It was so easy to schedule an appointment. I would recommend anybody to go to him. He helped my eczema out tremendously. I am now happy with my skin. Thank you so much! Please come see him and you would not be disappointed.
