Treatment of Eczema
Our platform has an image upload feature that is extremely helpful for both providers and patients. With this feature, our physicians can get a precise, detailed look at your rash before the visit even begins. This feature is also very useful to see how your rash has progressed. If your rash has been present for a while and you have a picture from early on, it is helpful for our providers to see the comparison.
If your outbreak is on your face, this feature is specifically useful for those that wear makeup – you can take a picture when you have a clean face, save it and upload before your visit! For best results we recommend pictures be taken in bright, natural light, close to the rash and from a few different angles.
If you can give a size perspective, like laying a dime near the rash, this can be extremely helpful, as well. Options for treatment of dermatitis may include
- Coal tar extract
- Barrier creams
- A prescription for steroids, antihistamines or topical antiseptics
