Eczema, also called atopic dermatitis, is a common inflammation of the skin that is associated with allergies. Symptoms of eczema include swollen, scaly, itchy, cracking, bumpy, blistering or red skin. Some types of eczema may be caused by allergens that you’ve come into contact with, including:

  • Cosmetics
  • Skin soap or shampoo
  • Cleaning materials
  • Perfume/cologne
  • Rubber products
  • Mold
  • Certain metals, such as nickel jewelry
  • Weeds, grasses & poison oak
  • Dust mites
  • Animal dander

If you have any eczema symptoms, look to Allergy & Asthma Associates of Southern California. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained allergy doctors are experts when it comes to solving eczema and all other skin allergy problems.

Treatment of eczema

Drs. Berger, Carr and Sugar conduct in-office skin tests to diagnose eczema and then develop a customized treatment plan to provide welcome, lasting relief. Eczema treatments include prescription skin creams and lotions and, obviously, avoiding the cause of the rash altogether. If indicated, medicated shampoos will be recommended. Lastly, if your eczema causes your skin to become infected, our doctors may prescribe antibiotics.

What's New

Allergy and Asthma Associates has established the Food Allergy Center, the first and only one of its kind in Orange County, to focus exclusively on the diagnosis and now treatment of food allergy. We are now offering oral immunotherapy. The purpose of oral immunotherapy (OIT) is to decrease your sensitivity to allergy-causing foods, so that exposure to the offending food (peanut, milk, egg, tree nuts etc.) will result in fewer and less severe symptoms in the event of an accidental exposure.

What Our Patients Say About Us

  • I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t do anything that I wanted to do, let alone go out and do anything athletic with my children or for myself. Then I met Dr Berger. He changed my life – he put in the time, the effort and the extra research to get me the diagnosis and the correct medications that changed my life forever!... - Linda

  • When I first got diagnosed with asthma it started off as exercised induced but throughout the years it became worse than that. Just a wind would make me feel like I needed to take my inhaler, a change in the weather and I had to take a breathing treatment. It was really hard especially for being an athlete, because you don’t want anything holding you back from what you love to do...
