Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a common condition. In most cases, it starts during infancy and can persist on and off into adulthood. Whether you’re having symptoms for the first time or experiencing a flare-up, see your dermatologist in Arlington Heights if you have any signs of atopic dermatitis.
The telltale red, itchy rash of atopic dermatitis usually appears in areas where the skin flexes, such as the insides of the elbows or behind the knees. The rash may leak fluids, especially when it is scratched, which may cause it to crust over. Typically, atopic dermatitis symptoms don’t last indefinitely, but rather flare up and then disappear again. Your dermatologist can help you keep your symptoms in check.
