Eczema/Dermatitis Treatment

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a common skin condition characterised by red, itchy, and inflamed skin. 

Its exact cause isn’t fully understood, but it’s thought to result from a combination of genetics, immune system, and environmental factors.


Genetics: A family history of eczema can increase the risk.

Immune System Dysfunction: Overactive immune responses can lead to skin inflammation.

Skin Barrier Weakness: Eczema often occurs when the skin’s protective barrier is compromised, allowing irritants and allergens to penetrate.

Allergens: Substances like pollen, dust mites, and certain foods can trigger flare-ups, especially in individuals with allergies.

Irritants: Harsh soaps, detergents, fragrances, and chemicals can worsen symptoms.

Environmental Factors: Cold, dry weather and excessive sweating can exacerbate eczema.

Stress: Emotional stress can weaken the immune system and worsen symptoms.


The management of eczema can be through a variety of approaches. An appointment with one of our doctors is essential to tailor a plan to suit your skin’s needs. We also offer treatments from our dermal clinicians that may assist in the management of eczema such as LED light therapy.
