Atopic Dermatitis and Eczema in Lake Barrington, IL

Atopic dermatitis, another name for eczema, is an inflammatory skin condition that can cause patients great discomfort. Drs. Noga Askenazi, Dipika Patel, and Eugenia Hahn in the Lake Barrington, IL area believe in providing patients quality, comprehensive diagnostics, treatments, and maintenance for those who have this condition. Though it is more common in babies, sometimes affecting up to 20% of them, it is known to affect approximately 3% of adults as a chronic condition.

At Advanced Allergy and Asthma Associates and Food Allergy Center of Illinois, our team of professionals believe in offering new and current patients with the proper diagnosis of this condition to then develop a treatment plan designed for their specific needs. Drs. Noga Askenazi, Dipika Patel, and Eugenia Hahn are very familiar with atopic dermatitis and can easily diagnosis and offer treatment suggestions to patients. The first step is getting patients comfortable, which can be done with topical hydrocortisone cream and lotions to address the dryness and itching that can occur. Once patients are comfortable, more long-term solutions are considerer including topical creams, oral medications, and even phototherapy sessions. All the treatment options available can be discussed with patients who are ready to take charge of their condition and improve their quality of life. For some individuals, finding a treatment option that works best can be done through trial and error. Not everyone’s eczema is a “one size fits all” situation so it is important to work with a trained professional to find the treatment that provides the relief necessary. Knowing the type of eczema and what causes flare-ups can also help the allergist in forming an effective treatment plan for patients.

If you live in the Lake Barrington, IL area and believe that eczema (or atopic dermatitis) is greatly affecting your every day life and comfort, it is time to contact a quality allergist at our practice to learn more about the condition and how to eradicate it.
