Side Profile of Male Patient with Eczema Atlanta GA

It’s December now, and the temperatures are dropping. Sometimes, all you want to do is hop in a hot bath and warm up to try to avoid the cold. However, if you have eczema, your skin problem could be worsened by your desire to soak in a bathtub filled with hot water. Additionally, baths filled with the popular bath bombs can be even more aggravating to your condition.

Eczema is characterized by itchy rashes that are typically in the creases of your knees or elbows. This itchiness can lead to scratching, which can lead to redness, swelling, cracking and blistering. If you or your child has this condition, a dermatologist, such as Dr. Weisman will properly diagnose it and provide a treatment plan that will give you or your child the long-term relief you deserve.

Winter conditions such as low humidity, wind and cooler temperatures can lead to dry skin and can irritate your eczema and make it worse. In addition, harsh soaps (like those that may be found in bath bombs or bubble baths) and too much washing can lead to dry skin.

The National Eczema Association recommends, “Tips for bathing and moisturizing with eczema.”

  1. Take a lukewarm bath for five to 10 minutes at least once per day, and use a gentle cleanser (no soaps). Avoid scrubbing the affected skin. They recommend bathing at night, just before bed to help your skin better retain its moisture.
  2. After bathing, pat your skin lightly with a towel, but leave it slightly damp.
  3. Apply a high-oil content moisturizer to improve your hydration and protect your skin’s barrier.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
