What is Eczema?

Eczema is a condition that results from an inflammatory response to irritants such as food, dust, and animal dander. Also referred to as atopic dermatitis, a weakened immune system can lead to eczema. It is usually marked by itchy dry skin patches, redness, and flaking skin, however there are various types of eczema with differing characteristics. It can also lead to thick, leathery skin, oozing patches of skin, and other symptoms. Eczema can occur anywhere on the body, however it is often localized to specific areas, which can vary with type.

Phototherapy Eczema Treatment

Although many cases clear up within several months, eczema can persist for years or a lifetime. Treating chronic eczema can be very difficult, however phototherapy has been shown to be highly effective. Phototherapy for eczema promotes the healing of abnormal skin cells and provides relief from itching. Phototherapy eczema treatment also reduces inflammation and flare ups, as well as providing a number of other benefits.
