Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, affects people of all ages and skin types, from infants well into adulthood. Many people with eczema have other “atopic” conditions like asthma or hay fever. All three are linked, but not everyone has all three conditions. At LM Medical NYC, our board certified dermatologist, Dr. Morgan, offers atopic dermatitis, or eczema, treatment at our medical facility in Manhattan.

Eczema is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. “Atopic” tendencies combined with skin abnormalities can result in more irritation by common environmental factors, including certain soaps, temperature and other triggers. Atopic dermatitis affects children more than adults, and many cases of childhood eczema go away on their own by adulthood.

Symptoms of Eczema

Eczema has different symptoms, depending on the age of the individual. Infants with atopic dermatitis typically have red, dry scaly patches on their cheeks that itch and may be uncomfortable. Toddlers have eczema move to the outside of their joints, with thicker, drier patches. School-age children may have eczema patches on their elbows and knees, as well as coin-sized red, itchy patches all over the body.

For adults with atopic dermatitis, the affected areas are thicker and leathery compared to childhood symptoms. Common areas affected for adults include the hands, knees/elbows, chest/nipples and eyelids.

Atopic dermatitis/eczema treatment plans should be tailored to the patient based on their age, medical history, skin condition and other factors. World-renowned dermatologist Dr. Morgan can use her expertise to devise a treatment plan to improve the health and appearance of the skin to promote healing and comfort. This can include oral and topical medications, lifestyle changes and other treatments.

If you or your child suffers from atopic dermatitis, contact us at LM Medical NYC. We can schedule an appointment to meet with skin expert Dr. Morgan or one of our dermatology team at our clinic in Greenwich Village.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
