Eczema, also referred to as Dermatitis, is a type of skin inflammation characterized by red, itchy and swollen skin. Atopic Dermatitis (hereditary) and Contact Dermatitis (allergic and irritant) are the most common types of eczema. Eczema most commonly appears behind the knees, inside of the elbows and on the face, neck and hands. Flare-ups are most common during the winter months when skin is at its driest. Eczema is a common skin concern and like rosacea, can only be managed, not cured.
At Thornhill Dermatology Centre, we are proud to provide medical-grade interventions for effective eczema treatment. We provide a variety of eczema solutions including medication, skincare and trigger avoidance coaching. Our dermatologists provide a clinical diagnosis to ensure the most effective treatment solutions are proposed and reviewed.
