What is Eczema?

Eczema is an inflammation or irritation of the skin’s outer layer (epidermis). It causes skin dryness and recurrent rashes. It is the skin’s reaction to an allergen or infection. Viva Aesthetic Clinic provide the best Eczema Treatment in Mumbai.

What are the signs and symptoms?

Redness, swelling, itching, crusting, fissures, and bleeding of the skin are all possible symptoms. Eczema is a non-contagious skin condition that is especially frequent among women and small children.

What are the Causes?

Though the specific cause of eczema is uncertain, it is connected to an excessive immune system response to certain stimuli. People who have a history of allergies or asthma are more likely to acquire eczema.


Lifestyle Modification

Include frequently using moisturizer, avoiding certain clothing and using Eczema–friendly products.
Finding an allergy caused by food or something in the patient’s environment can be beneficial.

In many cases eliminating allergens brings relief when combined with appropriate treatment and lifestyle changes.

Mild Eczema is treated with oral and systemic medicines.

Laser Therapy in the Treatment of Eczema

  • Excimer lasers, which provide ultraviolet light to specific parts of the skin, are now another option for treating Eczema.
  • This treatment employs powerful, targeted doses of laser light to help control mild to moderate eczema without causing injury to good skin around the affected area.
  • Targeted laser therapy works similarly to regular light therapy in terms of efficacy, but it requires fewer sessions and uses stronger doses of light that can penetrate deeper into the damaged skin and skin layer.
  • Handheld laser wands are especially useful for treating eczema in difficult-to-reach areas such the elbows, knees, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and scalp.

How does Eczema Laser Treatment Work?

  • During the therapy, the doctor directs the laser towards eczema spots. You may feel some warmth or a cracking feeling against your skin.
  • Excimer lasers deliver a high-intensity ultraviolet B (UVB) light dose of a particularly precise wavelength — 308 nanometers — at psoriasis lesions.
  • Because the laser light never contacts the surrounding skin, the risk of UV radiation exposure is reduced. Excimer lasers are used to treat skin conditions that are mild to moderate in severity.
  • To achieve the best outcomes with excimer laser therapy, patients often receive two sessions each week for four to ten weeks.
  • Your doctor will estimate your laser light dose based on the thickness of your eczema plaques and your skin tone; lighter skin receives a lower dose. You will be given dark goggles to protect your eyes during the process.

Phototherapy in the Treatment of Eczema

Phototherapy is a treatment that uses UV light to stop or reduce your immune system’s overreaction.

Phototherapy is classified into two types: UV therapy and PUVA therapy. UV therapy exposes your skin to UVA and UVB rays, sometimes separately, sometimes simultaneously, and occasionally on your skin.

Psoralen, a prescription medicine that makes your skin more susceptible to UVA rays, is added to PUVA therapy. When UV therapy has not been effective, this treatment is used.

Phototherapy with UVB Wavelengths:

  • UVB is a type B ultraviolet light, which has been utilised to treat skin diseases.
  • The treatment for eczema is standing in a lightbox three times each week for a total of 20 to 30 sessions.
  • Each treatment / procedure lasts longer and longer till the skin turns somewhat pink. Following the first phase of treatment, weekly maintenance treatments may be administered.

UVA Phototherapy

  • UVA is a type A ultraviolet light. UVA is found in sunshine as well, but it has a different effect on the skin than UVB.
  • To make the skin more responsive to UVA eczema light therapy, an oral medicine, psoralen, must be taken an hour before the treatment to make the skin more sensitive to light therapy.

PUVA Phototherapy

PUVA phototherapy refers to the combination of psoralen and UVA. For 12 to 15 weeks, PUVA eczema treatments are administered two to three times each week.
As with UVB, the duration of exposure is gradually increased, and weekly maintenance treatments may be administered after the first phase of treatment.

Phototherapy with Narrowband UVB

  • Narrowband UVB is gradually replacing both broadband UVB and PUVA. It is equally effective and one of the finest treatments for the skin problem as other types of eczema phototherapy and has fewer side effects.
  • Narrowband UVB utilises a very small portion of the UVB spectrum, reducing exposure to UV radiation.
  • Because eczema therapies can be administered more safely and quickly, narrowband UVB may be more effective and require a shorter treatment cycle.
  • The benefits of using eczema light therapy include that it often works after other eczema treatments have failed, and it has less side effects than many prescription drugs used to treat eczema.
