7: Eczema 101
Show Notes

Get ready to get the basis info on eczema! What it is, why it happens, and ways to manage it.

As a general Pediatrician, I see TONS of eczema. Some mild, some moderate, some very severe. I always manage it the best we can in our office before sending patients to a specialist.

But how do you know when you need to see an allergist for eczema?

On this week’s episode, I speak with Dr. Shreya Patel (@shreyapatelmd).

She is a mom and Allergist/Immunologist who owns her own private practice.

We chat all about Eczema 101:

  • What does eczema looks like?
  • Are some children predisposed to eczema?
  • Are there preventable measures? 
  • When should a child see an allergist for their eczema?
  • What would workup entail at the allergist?
  • What are some basic skincare tips for eczema?

Eczema is THE most common chronic skin condition I see in my office and it was such a pleasure discussing this topic with Dr. Patel.
