Eczema Treatment in Seattle

Eczema is one of the most common skin conditions, affecting 7 percent of Americans. It starts in childhood (before age five), but some people develop it later in life.

Research suggests that eczema develops due to genetic and environmental factors that make it difficult for the skin to maintain a healthy barrier. When this happens, allergens and bacteria can enter and cause the following symptoms:
• Dry, sensitive skin
• Itching
• Oozing and crusting
• Red, scaly patches of skin
• Rough, leathery skin
• Allergies
• Asthma

Advanced Eczema Clinical Trial Treatments:

We offer several clinical trials for patients with atopic eczema. We offer trials for topical treatments, pills, and injection medications in patients of all ages. Some of the newest approved treatments directly stem from research conducted in our Eczema Program. One such discovery is a treatment targeting a specific white blood cell called a T-helper 2 lymphocyte (Th2) producing IL-4, which we found to be highly active in eczema cases and associated with disease severity.

Advanced Eczema Clinical Trial Treatments:

We can also test to see if you have an allergy that makes your eczema worse or is causing contact dermatitis. We design our patch testing to meet your own specific, individual needs. Our past studies have found that food allergies can make eczema symptoms worse in some children. When appropriate, we may refer you to one of our food allergy experts. We conduct clinical trials in eczema therapies here in our clinic, which means our patients have access to the latest treatments. Our goal is to get you the most effective care in the fastest and safest way possible. [ Learn more about our Patch Testing }
