Atopic Dermatitis and Eczema Treatment

If you or your child are struggling with the itchy, dry, and inflamed skin associated with atopic dermatitis or eczema, you're not alone. At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Newport Beach, our board-certified dermatologists specialize in providing comprehensive, personalized treatment plans for patients of all ages suffering from these chronic skin conditions.

Understanding Atopic Dermatitis and Eczema

Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a common inflammatory skin condition that causes dry, itchy, and irritated skin. While it often develops in childhood, eczema can persist into adulthood or even appear later in life. Symptoms may include:

  • Red, itchy patches on the skin
  • Dry, cracked, or scaly skin
  • Thickened or leathery skin
  • Oozing or crusting of affected areas

At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics, we understand the physical and emotional impact that eczema can have on your quality of life. Our experienced dermatologists are dedicated to helping you find relief from your symptoms and achieve healthier, more comfortable skin.

Comprehensive Eczema Evaluation

The first step in effectively managing your eczema is to undergo a thorough evaluation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During your consultation, we'll assess your skin, discuss your medical history and triggers, and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Identifying Triggers

We will work with you to identify potential triggers that may exacerbate your eczema symptoms. Common triggers include:

  • Irritants (soaps, detergents, wool)
  • Allergens (dust mites, pet dander, pollen)
  • Stress
  • Climate (dry or humid weather)

By understanding your unique triggers, we can help you develop strategies to minimize flare-ups and maintain healthier skin.

Personalized Eczema Treatment Plans

At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics, we offer a range of advanced treatment options to help you manage your eczema symptoms and improve your skin's overall health. Your personalized treatment plan may include:

Topical Medications

We may prescribe topical corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, or PDE4 inhibitors to reduce inflammation, itching, and redness associated with eczema. We'll provide guidance on the proper application of these medications to ensure optimal results.

Oral Medications

In more severe cases of eczema, oral medications such as systemic corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, or biologics may be necessary to control symptoms. We will carefully monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.


Narrowband UVB phototherapy is a safe and effective treatment option for patients with widespread or resistant eczema. This therapy involves exposing the skin to controlled doses of UVB light, which can help reduce inflammation and improve skin texture.

Skincare Recommendations

We will provide personalized skincare recommendations to help you maintain healthy, hydrated skin. This may include gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and other products specifically formulated for sensitive, eczema-prone skin.

Pediatric Eczema Treatment

Eczema is particularly common in children, and we have extensive experience in treating pediatric patients. We understand the unique challenges that come with managing eczema in children and work closely with parents to develop gentle, effective treatment plans that minimize discomfort and improve quality of life.
