Skin Disorders

Skin disorders like hives, eczema, and dermatitis are some of the most common allergy-related conditions that are treated by our Board Certified allergists. Our physicians have specialized training and education in diagnosing and treating these types of conditions, and they offer personalized treatment plans to fit your individual needs.

Common symptoms of skin allergies include itching, redness, and swelling and can be attributed to a variety of factors, including immune system disorders, medications, and infections. Skin allergies we treat include:

  • Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)
  • Contact Dermatitis
  • Urticaria (Hives)
  • Angioedema (Swelling)

Treatment Options

Treatment varies depending on what’s causing the allergy and how severe it is. Eczema is often treated with moisturizers and topical ointments to reduce inflammation, while hives are managed with antihistamines, and by avoiding the trigger that causes them. It is important to see an allergist to determine the cause of the disorder and the best course of treatment for you.
