There’s always more to learn about eczema—that’s our motto. But we’re not the only ones putting that to the test. That’s why we recommend finding an eczema specialist and a care team that includes doctors with unique training that helps them understand all the ways eczema can impact your quality of life.
Eczema specialists include:
- Dermatologists, or doctors trained primarily to diagnose and treat over 3,000 conditions of the skin, hair, and nails. They’re also trained to understand the impact these conditions can have on your life.
- Allergists, or doctors who are specifically trained to identify, diagnose, and treat allergies, asthma, and immunologic disease. Their broad knowledge of conditions commonly associated with eczema can give allergists unique insight into your eczema.
While many people visit their primary care physician for their eczema, a specialist or a team of specialists from different backgrounds may be able to further help you understand the biological, psychological, behavioral, and environmental factors of this complex condition, or refer you to the right doctor who can.
