It’s reported that more than 31 million Americans have eczema. Since this inflammation is not one, but many, different types of conditions, it’s important to seek the specialized knowledge of the Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia for appropriate, customized eczema treatment.
 
Atopic dermatitis is a severe type of eczema. Infants are frequently afflicted with the characteristic intense itching, redness, and flaking skin. The Board-certified dermatologists may work with your pediatrician to develop lifestyle modifications to prevent irritation to your baby’s sensitive skin. Irritants often include clothes made from synthetic fibers, harsh soaps, dust mites, and pet dander. If symptoms persist, the doctors may prescribe creams or light-based therapies, singularly or in combination with medications.
 
You have probably had contact dermatitis or will develop it at some point. When your skin contacts an irritant or allergen like latex, bleach, or a poisonous plant, you may develop the telltale blisters, and cracking, burning, and stinging with this type of eczema. Unlike atopic dermatitis, it is not a chronic condition and triggers may be avoided. If you have an infection or your symptoms are severe, the doctor can prescribe antibiotics or steroids.
 
Better known as “cradle cap” among the youngest patients, seborrheic dermatitisoften distinguishes itself with intense scalp dryness and flaking. Nummular eczema is a common condition characterized by stubborn disc-shaped inflammation that can look a lot like ringworm. You, or a loved one, may also suffer from other types of eczema, including neurodermatitis and stasis dermatitis.
 
The earlier the professionals at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia can examine your skin, the sooner you’ll be able to get relief from disruptive and debilitating symptoms that can affect your, or your child’s, sleep and quality of life.

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
