What is Eczema/Atopic Dermatitis?
Atopic dermatitis—more commonly known as eczema—is a chronic, inflammatory condition that can make your skin red, blotchy, and itchy. Commonly connected to a family history of allergies, onset frequently occurs in infancy or childhood and may persist into adolescence and adulthood. Often accompanied by asthma or seasonal allergies, symptoms of atopic dermatitis include dry, flaky skin; inflammation; dark-colored patches; rough patches; moderate to severe itching; oozing and crusting; and sometimes swelling.
What is an Allergy Patch Test?
Saguaro Dermatology, located in central Phoenix (just south of the Biltmore/Arcadia area and north of Tempe) offers patch testing for persistent eczema. There are many types of allergies, but many people aren’t aware of the allergic form of eczema called “allergic contact dermatitis” (ACD).
