Buffalo Amherst Allergy can help treat skin conditions such as contact dermatitis, eczema and hives.
We can evaluate a patient for contact skin allergy by performing patch testing in our office. Contact dermatitis can occur when a patient has a itchy, red rash after he/she is exposed to a chemical, metal or other substance. It is important to know what is causing this type of reaction.
Eczema is a common skin condition that can also present as an itchy red rash. Eczema can occur in babies, children and adults and can be all over the body or just in some areas. Eczema is usually quite itchy and common in patients with dry, sensitive skin. Treatment is available!
Hives (also known as urticaria) are itchy red areas that are either red or skin colored. Sometimes there are triggers for hives such as foods, infections, medications, or pollen. There are many treatments available for short - lived (acute) and long-term (chronic) hives. It is important to have an evaluation to see if the cause of your hives can be determined.
