Eczema Treatment in NYC
Sheryl D. Clark, M.D. is one of New York City’s
Top-Rated Doctors for eczema treatment.
Millions of people across the United States find themselves affected by eczema in at least some stage or form. Though it is common, that doesn’t make it any less of a challenge to live with. The condition causes a range of skin concerns, all of which can make it difficult to feel comfortable and confident in your skin. That is why Dr. Clark is proud to offer cutting-edge eczema treatment options to her patients in New York City.
With one in ten people developing eczema at some point in their lives, it is vital that modern medicine provides a solution. Eczema appears as red, dry, and often itchy patches of skin. At MD Skin Science, Dr. Clark uses both traditional and advanced methods to treat eczema at various stages and on any part of the body.
How Can Eczema Treatment Improve Your Skin?
The main goal of eczema treatment is to reduce your symptoms and clear up your skin. While there is no complete cure for the condition, we do have several ways to help patients reduce and relieve symptoms and heal the affected skin.
If laser therapy is part of your eczema treatment plan, you can expand it to provide a rejuvenating benefit as well. Dr. Clark uses lasers in her cosmetic treatments to help patients get healthier and younger skin that looks and feels fresher. Depending on your situation, this could be part of your treatment plan, so you not only reduce your symptoms but enhance the appearance of your skin at the same time.
What Body Areas Can We Treat Eczema On?
Eczema can appear on any part of the body. However, it most commonly shows up on the hands, elbows, and the areas of the body that bend, such as behind your knees or inside your elbow crease. Wherever your eczema has shown up, we can develop a plan to treat it and restore your skin to a healthy and fresh state. We carefully match your treatment method to what will work best for your individual situation and eczema flare-ups.
What Is the Treatment Like?
For medication-based treatment, you can expect regular applications of topicals or taking pills orally. Fortunately, these treatments are not only fast but comfortable as well. Most patients report only a minor stinging sensation during the brief treatment, which is well tolerated. After your treatment, there can be some redness, swelling, or sensitivity at the treated area. But this fades in several days along with signs of your eczema. In some cases, this type of therapy is effective against difficult-to-treat types of eczema.
Which Eczema Treatment Is Right for Me?
Choosing the right eczema treatment is crucial to see a significant reduction in your symptoms. Dr. Clark will carefully investigate your unique situation before building a treatment plan fully tailored to it. She takes into account everything from your medical history to the stage of eczema when putting together a treatment. She carefully tracks the progress of your treatment as well, making any additional changes as needed to ensure you get the results you want.

When Can I See Results?
Medicine doesn’t yet provide an overnight solution for eczema. However, the treatments we provide deliver results as fast as possible. Still, the duration of each treatment can vary and depends on a range of factors, including:
- Type of treatment
- Age and health of the patient
- Stage and type of eczema
- And more
In most cases, treatments should clear up rashes from eczema within several days to a couple weeks. To see optimal results, it is important to stick to your treatment regimen.
For many patients, eczema is a lifelong condition. While flare-ups can occur throughout your life, having timely treatment and healthy habits can keep these to a minimum. If flare-ups do occur, MD Skin Science and Dr. Clark are here to be by your side for fast and effective treatment.
If you have general skin irritation, that falls under the umbrella category of dermatitis. This condition is caused by a range of factors and can look different from one patient to the next, which is why you need a professional dermatologist to find the right treatment for you. Dermatitis can appear as dry skin or a rash, along with blisters, oozing, or flaking in some cases.
While dermatitis isn’t contagious, it can still impact how you feel about yourself and your appearance. Fortunately, we provide several options for dermatitis treatment, each of them effective and straightforward.
For some patients, we may prescribe topical creams, while others might benefit from phototherapy. The type of dermatitis treatment you receive will depend on factors, including the type of dermatitis, the area to be treated, and the severity of your symptoms. In some cases, a combination of multiple treatment types may be the most effective way to find relief from your symptoms of dermatitis.
