Main concern(s): Dyshidrotic Eczema
Patient: 26 years old, female, Michigan
Practitioner: Aaron Li
Patient has had dyshidrotic eczema mainly on her hands for the past 5 years.
For the first several years she states she had flare ups all year long. She tried topical medication (steroid creams) which only worked for a little while. She has tried to avoid certain detergents and soaps, wearing gloves, and made dietary changes which helped to alleviate some of the flare ups. In recent years, major flare ups happen and last all throughout the spring and summer seasons, and flare ups happen to a lesser extent during colder seasons. She started to occasionally use a different form of steroid creams and aquaphor but states it only provides temporary relief.
Patient hopes to get rid of eczema, not have to rely on topical medication, and not have to make as many dietary restrictions to deal with her skin condition.
In her initial exam, patches of eczema are mainly seen on her left elbow crease and both hands.
After only 4 months of treatment the patient has seen tremendous progress with her eczema. She has stopped using topical medications and is overall feeling better.
Patient has seen drastic improvements in her skin and no longer deals with any flare ups. She has been able to take up hobbies such as swimming again, she has been able to reintroduce foods back into her diet without worrying about them triggering flare ups, and she is no longer on any topical medication. Patient is now on a monthly maintenance treatment.
