Our dermatology team can recommend specific products that may be suitable for your skin.

Our dermatologist near me can recommend specific products that are suitable for your skin type and condition. In addition to using the right products, it is also important to avoid hot showers and to apply moisturizer immediately after bathing to lock in moisture.

  5. If you have eczema, you may have many questions about the condition. Some common questions include whether eczema can be cured and how it affects children. While there is no cure for eczema, it is a manageable condition that can be controlled with proper treatment. Children are more likely to develop eczema, but it can also occur in adults.
