According to the National Eczema Association, more than 30 million people live with eczema. People who have this troublesome skin condition struggle with the physical effects, as well as a reduced quality of life. With locations in Brick, and Wall, NJ, Ocean Allergy offers treatment for eczema sufferers. Dr. Chirag Patel, Dr. Thu Aung, and Dr. Bruce DeCotiis educate patients on the importance of treatment and ways to manage the symptoms.
Treatment Protects Your Skin Barrier
Your epidermis is comprised of five layers, and the stratum corneum is on the surface. The stratum corneum is known as your skin’s barrier to protect your body from bacteria, toxins, free radicals, and other harmful substances. It also keeps moisture and oils in your skin. Eczema creates openings in your skin which result in dryness and a higher risk of infection. Dr. Patel, Dr. Aung, and Dr. DeCotiis help you manage your eczema symptoms to protect your skin barrier.
Reduce the Risk of Infection
Cracking, peeling, and flaking from eczema creates an ideal environment for bacteria. Without treatment, you may develop skin infections, scarring, and other types of damage. The goal of your treatment plan is to calm and soothe your skin while reducing the likelihood of flare-ups.
Improved Quality of Life
Even the mildest symptoms of eczema distract people from enjoying a good quality of life. It is hard to relax when you are constantly struggling with itching, inflammation, oozing sores, rashes, and other issues. With eczema treatment at Ocean Allergy, we help you better manage your symptoms, so you can focus on the other aspects of your life.
Feel More Confident
Do you avoid wearing certain types of clothing due to your eczema or feel uncomfortable when people get close to you? Eczema treatment reduces the visible effects of the condition, and you feel more confident in every situation.
How is Eczema Treated?
Topical and oral medications are effective for managing your eczema. Dr. Patel, Dr. Aung, and Dr. DeCotiis may recommend lifestyle changes to avoid triggering your symptoms. With time and patience, you are better able to manage your eczema.
