Eczema Across Skin Tones and Effective Treatments I Recommend

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition characterized by inflammation, redness, itching, and dryness of the skin. In the U.S. alone it affects more than 31 million people regardless of age, race, or gender. As a board-certified internal medicine physician with an expertise in cosmetic medicine and anti-aging, many patients have come to see me to understand why this is happening to them and how they can deal with it.  Eczema exhibits some differences in how it presents across various skin tones and so I emphasize the importance of early diagnosis and tailored treatment plans for each individual.
