What is Eczema?

Eczema (Dermatitis) is a skin rash that is often dry, itchy and red. Sometimes, it is weepy and presents with blisters.

There are 2 broad groups of eczemas:

  • Endogenous Eczema: Endogenous means arising from within the body and the cause is not obvious.
  • Exogenous Eczema: Exogenous means trigger factors are from external sources.

What is Atopic Eczema?

Atopic Eczema is one type of endogenous eczema and is a very common skin disease that afflicts about 20% of children nowadays. However, it can also affect adults. Children and adults afflicted with this disease often suffer from itch and rashes for a long duration.

Common Triggers of Eczema

Some common triggers and aggravating factors for eczema include:

  • Environmental Factors

    Pollution, as well as extremes in temperature and humidity (such as in tropical climates) can serve as triggers. You may also react differently when exposed to certain animals or plants.

  • Chemical Irritants

    This includes common household items such as soaps, topical treatments, detergents, and scents.

  • Dietary Allergies

    The most common food allergens are egg, soy, milk, wheat, fish, shellfish, bird nest and peanut.

  • Hormonal Cycle

    Changes in your hormones can trigger flare-ups. For women, these include certain points in their menstrual cycle or during pregnancy.

  • Stress

    Stress can come from relationship problems or major life changes, such as divorce, job changes or school examinations.

  • Identification of Eczema Triggers & Combined Treatment Method

    Dermatologist Dr. Wong will identify the triggers and educate the patient on how to deal with the itch during consultation. Using his experience, Dr. Wong often combines old and tested methods as well as the latest medications and approaches to help eczema sufferers. This often includes bath, emollient, cream medication, oral medication and light treatment. An effective multi-prong anti-inflammation approach to tame the hyperactive immune system is important.

  • Using The latest Biologic injection “Dupixent”

    Dr. Wong also uses the latest Biologic injection “Dupixent” to treat patients with severe eczema. This is a new class of drugs that come from clinical eczema research. They are given as injections and they are very effective in controlling atopic eczema. Their main advantage is the absence of organ damage to the kidney, liver and the ease and convenience of receiving the treatment. Their main disadvantage is that the treatment is costly and is rarely covered by insurance. All pros and cons will be discussed with you before Dr. Wong starts you on Dupixent injection treatment.

An experienced dermatologist with over 30 years of experience, Dr. Wong Soon Tee will be able to accurately identify the nature of your eczema and recommend the most suitable treatment for you.
