When to see a doctor about eczema

Many cases of eczema start in babies and infants (approximately 65% of all cases), so if your baby has a rash and eczema is suspected, then a doctor should be consulted for a diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan. Children are also quite susceptible to eczema, so any new rash in a child without fever or other visible symptoms should be taken to a doctor for diagnosis.


Adults with any of the symptoms of eczema should visit a doctor in order to diagnose this condition and get advice on an appropriate treatment plan. There are a number of options for treatment, both conventional and alternative and your doctor will advise which options are available and safe for your situation.
