Eczema Treatment in Hyderabad

Eczema is a medical skin concern, a type of dermatitis, that manifests as patches of dry, rough, itchy, cracked, and bumpy skin. Some forms of eczema can even cause skin blisters. This skin condition weakens the skin’s functioning as a barrier, which plays a role in protecting the body from outside elements and helps the skin retain moisture.
If one is suffering from eczema and wants a healthy disease free skin, they can consult an expert eczema doctor in Hyderabad, Dr. Ravali Yalamanchili at Neya Dermatology & Aesthetics Clinic. She offers treatment and lifestyle management for managing skin disorders and helping one achieve an improved quality of life.

  • Atopic dermatitis- a chronic condition characterized by dry, itchy, inflamed skin
  • Contact dermatitis- an allergic skin reaction on contact with any allergen
  • Neurodermatitis- scaly skin patches on the wrists, head, forearms, and lower legs resulting from the localized itch, like after an insect bite
  • Dyshidrotic eczema- irritation and blisters formation on palms of hand and soles of the feet

  • Seborrheic dermatitis- irritated, itchy, scaly, red skin on the scalp

Treatments for Eczema in Hyderabad

Eczema can be managed by healing the affected skin and preventing its symptoms from a flare-up. The treatment of eczema varies among patients. It depends upon the type and severity of the condition, the age and current health status of the patient, and what has triggered the symptoms to flare up. The following are the treatment options recommended for eczema:

  • Topical medications- The skin doctor may prescribe topical steroids. Immunosuppressant drugs like topical calcineurin inhibitors may even be prescribed to regulate the functioning of the immune system, reduce inflammation, and prevent flare-ups.
  • Moisturizers- To relieve dry skin, skin professionals prescribe skin moisturizers that must be daily applied on damp skin after taking a shower or both. There are several moisturizers to treat eczema. However, it is recommended to choose for those moisturizers which are gentle or for sensitive skin, hypoallergenic, dyes, and scent-free; mineral oils or petroleum jelly based, not having stabilizers or preservatives, and having ceramides and lipids to improve the skin’s barrier.
  • Oral medications- These include anti-inflammatory medications, antibiotics, antihistamines, or corticosteroids to reduce swelling and itching as well as prevent infection.
  • Phototherapy- Using UVA or UVB light waves, the superficial affected skin (i.e. moderate dermatitis) can be heat destroyed and removed to reveal the underlying clear, smooth, refreshing, healthy skin.

Tips to Prevent Eczema or Avoid Triggers of Eczema Flare or Outbreaks

  • Regularly moisturize the skin or use moisturizers when the skin is dry.
  • Take a shower or bath with cold or warm water and not hot water and immediately apply a skin moisturizer.
  • Keep the skin well-hydrated and moist by drinking a sufficient amount of water daily.
  • Avoid exposing the skin to known allergens and irritants.

  • Wear loose-fitting garments made of cotton or easy-to-breathe fabrics. Avoid wearing woolen or synthetic clothing. Wear newly purchased clothes only after washing them.
  • Use a humidifier if the weather is less humid or there is dry air making the skin dry.
  • Manage stress and emotional triggers. It is important to consult a doctor if one is having poor mental health or emotional well-being.
