So here’s another daily do from your local dermatologist!

So let’s talk about EUCRISA, because EUCRISA is a very interesting new prescription to treat mild to moderate eczema in people 2 years of age or older, and the reason I really like this new prescription is that it treats eczema in a new way that does not rely on steroids. Now steroids are great and I use them all day long when appropriate, however, there are times when I do not want to worry about the long-term side effects of topical steroids and so in those situations EUCRISA gives us a great, new advantage. Now I still want people to bathe properly and I still want you to use the ceramide-based moisturizers like CeraVe and Cetaphil and I want you to use those multiple times a day and a lot of people I still want you to do the bleach baths a couple times a week and we have videos on all of these things to further explain, but if you’re trying to decide between a topical steroid and EUCRISA, I oftentimes go for the EUCRISA, because it doesn’t have the long-term side effects of the steroids, but please know there is still a role for topical steroids. Now, we just have another option.

Because Dermatologists treat more than just skin cancer!
