Eczema Treatment Through Online Dermatology Appointments
Because eczema is a condition that responds uniquely to every patient, finding the right way to manage your symptoms can be a challenge. Even more so when you have to worry about scheduling appointments months in advance to go visit your doctor.
However, through the online dermatology appointments with Tennessee Telederm, you can skip the inconvenient waiting times and fit an appointment right in with your schedule.
How Our Appointments Work
First, visit the Get Started page for specific instructions for setting up your account through our patient portal. Make sure to fill out your profile completely.
Next, you set up an appointment through your portal. You will be given a prompt to upload photos of your condition before your appointment. Uploading pictures of your atopic eczema will help us diagnose and treat your specific type of eczema.
Within 24 hours after your appointment, you will receive an email with your diagnosis and treatment plan. You will also receive instructions for any prescription medications given in your appointment.
What Kind of Medicine Will I Get To Help My Eczema?
There are several types of medications that are effective for managing eczema.
- Topical corticosteroid creams and ointments
- Systemic corticosteroids
Because the most common symptom of eczema is a chronic itch due to inflammation, these medications use steroids to reduce swelling. Topical medications are generally first, but if the patient needs more potent medicine, an oral corticosteroid may be prescribed.
