Allergist Kelly Maples, MD: Allergists are the perfect type of doctor to treat eczema or atopic dermatitis. Eczema is not just a skin disease it’s a systemic disease that affects our whole body, and it causes allergic inflammation.

Allergists can not only treat eczema with topical therapies, we can also help identify triggers of your eczema and help you know what to avoid, help you pick the right personal care products to help your skin get clear and less itchy, help you avoid things like dust mites and pets that you might be allergic to that might trigger your eczema.

So I see us as one-stop shopping. We can take care of your skin and identify the triggers all in one. We’re trained to do that.
