Eczema in West Palmdale, CA

Eczema is a term for a series of skin conditions brought on by different allergic reactions, or at times, from the body's response to a weak immune system. The outcome can result in skin redness, discoloration, and itchy patches similar to dermatitis. Often, the redness itself is dermatitis. This can happen anywhere on your body, including the hands, face, neck, or other regions. Atopic dermatitis is the most common type and is generally the consequence of an allergic reaction. This condition typically starts in childhood. At Sandhu Dermatology & Med Spa, with locations in West Palmdale, Ridgecrest, and Tehachapi, CA, we will attempt to diagnose exactly what is causing the inflammation so that an accurate treatment program can be created and carried out.

Eczema can be addressed with a range of over-the-counter or prescribed medications and ointments. Hydrocortisone ointments and creams and antihistamines, such as Benadryl®, can be bought to help relieve symptoms. Prescription drugs, like immunomodulators or steroid creams, can help if you have severe eczema. An oral steroid or corticosteroid may also be prescribed. In severe conditions, ultraviolet light therapy or laser therapy may also be used on the affected regions. When other options have failed, immunosuppressants could be prescribed since these medications suppress the immune system.

Eczema spots may appear anywhere but largely happen on the face, neck, legs, or hands. With children, patches can appear on the inner creases of their knees and elbows. Eczema is most commonly characterized by:

  • Red, dry, or itchy skin
  • Chronically itchy, dry, or thickened patches of skin
  • Persistent rashes

Once the skin is scratched, dry spots and open sores with scabs can develop and may become infected. Severe symptoms could include pus-filled blisters or a yellowish to light brown crust growing over existing eczema patches, which may indicate a bacterial infection.

I see Michelle the Nurse Practitioner and she is amazing at what she does! She is very honest and doesn't recommend things that won't benefit you. Thank you Michelle for doing my cosmetic treatments. Highly recommend

I am so upset right now, I was a new client going in for my very first visit for Botox , my appointment was at 4pm and they literally just called me at 3:05pm to tell me she is rescheduling my appointment to Tuesday, not even giving me the option or explaining why. This appointment was reserved one month ago. That is very unprofessional and they definitely lost a new client. The girl in the front needs training she comes off as very rude and is always calling out. They should’ve given me a heads up at least one to two days before but one hour before the procedure is very inconsiderate and unprofessional. ***UPDATE*** The Office Manager Eloísa called me to apologize for the bad experience I encountered. She made me feel comfortable and secure enough to give them a chance to do the services I wanted. I went in on 4/12 and had a great experience with Eloisa, Michelle and Lora. Overall I do recommend Sandhu Dermatology, thank you ladies for the great experience.
