What is eczema?

Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition that typically appears on the arms and behind the knees. The condition, though, may appear on other parts of your body. Most patients experience occasional flare-ups of their eczema, and these episodes can be caused by environmental irritants, stress and other factors.

What causes eczema?

While the exact cause of eczema is unknown, we do know that there is a connection between having dry skin and certain immune deficiencies.

Eczema Treatment NYC

How do you know if you have eczema?

Eczema most commonly occurs on the hands, feet, elbows, behind the knees, ankles, wrists, face, neck and upper torso.

You may notice small, red bumps on your skin that ooze and crust. You may also have patches of skin that are red or brownish-grey. Other signs of eczema are severe itching, especially at night; skin that is thick, cracked or scaly; and skin that is raw and sensitive.

Your eyes can also be affected by eczema. Your eyelids may itch, and scratching can worsen the symptoms by causing swelling and redness.

What is the cost of eczema treatment in our New York and New Jersey offices?

The price of eczema treatment varies for each person depending on the extent of treatment necessary.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

The health and safety of our patients and staff is our top priority. Our in-office safety policies are aligned with the latest guidelines issued by the CDC and local government officials related to COVID-19.

New safety policies for patients:

  • Patients will undergo screening questions and receive comprehensive instructions about our new policies prior to their appointment.
  • To minimize contact, we will offer patients virtual check in and check out.
  • Patients will be instructed to come to the office wearing a mask.
  • Patient temperatures will be checked via forehead scanners upon arrival to the office.
  • We have reorganized our offices to maximize social distancing and cleanliness, and we have altered workflows to allow patients to wait outside or in their cars until their exam room is ready. Patients will be contacted via text message or phone call when the provider is ready for the visit to begin.
  • We are asking for patients to arrive at their appointment alone. For children and adult patients who require a caretaker, one adult may accompany the patient.
  • Patients who are sick or have had exposures to COVID-19 will be rescheduled.
  • Offices will be cleaned and disinfected frequently throughout the day.
  • Teledermatology appointments remain available for patients who prefer to be seen virtually.

New safety policies for office & staff:

  • All of our staff have completed training on all new workflows and infection prevention measures.
  • All of our clinical staff will be wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) during patient encounters to include masks and eye protection.
  • Our exam rooms are sanitized before and after every patient visit.
  • All SLSS team members will be screened for symptoms and/or fever daily prior to coming to work.
