Phoenix Treatment for Eczema

Eczema, also known as atopic dermititis (AD), is the most common chronic skin condition that affects children. AD is often the first sign of allergy in kids and can be a sign that other allergic problems may develop over time.

AD is an itchy rash often associated with dry, cracking skin. The itching that occurs with AD is very intense and difficult to control. The itch often interferes with sleep and when severe AD can interfere with a child’s normal growth and development.

Neal Jain, M.D. Eczema and Allergies

Although there is no “cure” for eczema, it can be controlled and we will do all we can to find a treatment for eczema. It is important that kids with AD are evaluated for possible allergies, including food allergies or environmental allergies that may be contributing to the skin inflammation. Additional factors that can complicate eczema include skin infections and excessive dryness of the skin.

All of the providers at San Tan Allergy & Asthma are prepared to manage even the most severe cases of eczema. Dr. Jain and Dr. Shimamoto each completed fellowship programs in Allergy & Immunology at National Jewish Health Center, one of the leading eczema care centers in the country. They were fortunate to train with leading experts in their field and had involvement with various research studies. Additionally, Dr. Jain sat on the National Board of Directors for the National Eczema Association. Currently, the providers at San Tan Allergy & Asthma are active in eczema research and have been involved in multiple eczema research trails. Our specialists work hard to find treatment for eczema so our patients can experience optimal relief.

If you are looking for a treatment for your eczema, please call to schedule an appointment today with one of our allergy experts.
