Learn more about Eczema

What is Eczema?

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition that typically manifests as itchy, inflamed patches on the skin. This common skin condition may flare up over time, but it cannot be cured. Usually, eczema will occur on the face, hands, feet and the folds of elbows or knees, though it can show up anywhere on the body.

What are the causes of Eczema?

There are a few different causes of eczema, and they can vary by person. Generally, eczema is attributed to someone’s body having an overactive immune response to irritants. Similar to how your body’s immune system reacts if you have allergies, you may have eczema if your body reacts to common eczema irritants. Genetics, environment, foods and emotional triggers can also play a role in causing eczema.

What are the symptoms of Eczema?

Eczema symptoms can vary, but some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Itchy skin

  • Dry skin

  • Rashes on the skin

  • Bumps on the skin

  • Leathery patches on the skin

  • Scaly or cracked skin patches

  • Swelling


As a chronic condition, you likely won’t experience eczema symptoms at all times. Eczema usually flares up, meaning it comes and goes throughout your life. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t manage eczema symptoms to be more comfortable when they occur. We’ll touch on treatment options further down.

Is eczema contagious?

Fortunately, eczema is not a contagious condition. You can’t spread it from one person to another through touch or close contact. Eczema is primarily caused by genetic factors and overactive immune responses.

Is eczema an autoimmune disease?

Contrary to popular belief, eczema isn't classified as an autoimmune disease, where the body mistakenly attacks its own cells. Instead, eczema is when your immune system has an overreaction to external allergens or irritants.

Is eczema genetic?

Yes, an individual can have a genetic predisposition for eczema. Research has shown that genetics can heighten the likelihood of developing the condition, though this isn’t the only indicator or cause of eczema.

Is eczema itchy?

Yes, itchy skin is one of the most common symptoms that is associated with eczema. Itchiness can range from mild to intense and can sometimes disrupt daily life due to the discomfort. However, it’s important to remember that itching can cause skin damage and exacerbate the eczema. If you’re experiencing intense itching due to eczema, it’s best to get treatment to help manage symptoms rather than scratching at it.

How do I know if I need medication or a prescription?

If you suspect you have eczema, it’s best to speak with your primary care provider. They can help determine if medication is needed or if you need to be referred to a dermatologist.

Generally, it’s best to make an appointment if you’re experiencing any symptoms of eczema, but especially if the condition is causing disruptions to sleep and interfering with daily activities due to discomfort. From there, your health care provider may prescribe something or suggest over-the-counter options.

Eczema diagnosis and treatment

To get diagnosed with eczema, you will need to set up an appointment with your health care provider. They will be able to determine if you have eczema through a physical exam and several tests. These tests will also help to rule out any other conditions that may be causing your symptoms. Some common tests your doctor may suggest include:

  • Allergy panel

  • Blood tests

  • Skin biopsy


Once you’ve been diagnosed, your health care provider will determine the appropriate treatment plan. Treatment typically involves one or more of the following:

  • Gentle over-the-counter lotions and moisturizers

  • Topical steroids or other topical prescription treatments

  • Oral medications such as antihistamines or corticosteroids

  • Immunosuppressant medication

  • Light therapy

  • Avoidance of triggers that cause flare-ups

  • Lifestyle changes such as diet to avoid possible trigger foods


Treatment for eczema may vary from person to person. What works for one individual may not work for another. That’s why it’s essential to get a diagnosis and treatment plan from a medical professional, as they can monitor your progress and adjust treatment as necessary.

What you need to know about common skin conditions

While eczema is one of the most common skin conditions, there are numerous other common skin conditions to keep in mind. Some other common skin conditions include psoriasis, rosacea, hives and many more. Skin conditions often share common symptoms, such as itchiness and redness, but treatment plans will vary based on unique aspects of each condition.

Recognizing that these conditions have different treatment needs is important and further shows why getting a medical diagnosis is the best route to finding relief and managing your symptoms. Make sure to reach out to a primary care provider to determine your best path for treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Skincare appointments

What can I expect in first my appointment?

During your appointment, your provider will conduct a full evaluation of your skin concerns. If you have recently experienced skin changes, your provider will be able to help you diagnose the underlying causes and start you on a treatment that is right for you. 

Do I need an in-person appointment for skin care evaluation?

Our approach to skin care management is to provide better access to high quality providers through video appointments and in-app chat, so you can get support whenever you need it. 

Why shouldn't I just see a dermatologist?

At Circle Medical, our board certified primary care providers have been trained in a generalized approach to medicine and are comfortable treating a wide array of skin conditions, including acne, rashes, eczema, and psoriasis, to name a few. Also your Circle Medical primary care provider can also order blood work and help to treat any underlying conditions that may also be present. However, if your Circle Medical provider feels that a dermatologist would be helpful for your skin condition, they can provide a referral to a dermatologist to help make the process seamless. 

How often do I need to have appointments?

Your specific appointment frequency depends on your individual care plan. If this is a new diagnosis for you, you may have more frequent appointments with your provider to allow room for modifications to your care plan based on what is working. Patients who have already been placed on an effective skin care regimen and are focused on maintenance typically see their providers less frequently; about once every 3-6 months. We encourage you to discuss appointment frequency with your provider during your initial appointment if you have questions.
If you are experiencing severe health concerns, please dial 911 or visit your nearest emergency room.

How long will it take to see results / improve my skin appearance and health?

Your provider will create a custom treatment plan for you based on your needs. Depending on your treatment plan and your specific underlying causes, the amount of time it takes to see results and improvements will vary.

How can I prepare for my first appointment?

Please make sure you’re in a quiet place where you feel comfortable talking with your healthcare provider. Also, to assist your provider in a telehealth skin exam, please make sure you are in an area with proper lighting and good Wifi. This will allow your provider to perform a proper skin evaluation. 

Can my provider refer me to a skin specialist if needed?

Yes, all of our providers are board certified primary care providers who can not only evaluate your skin but also order blood work, place referrals, perform wellness exams, and assist with medical screenings as needed. 

Do Circle Medical providers only treat skin? 

No, all of our providers are board certified primary care providers who can not only evaluate your skin but also order blood work, place referrals, perform wellness exams, and assist with medical screenings as needed.

General

What if I need in-person testing or examinations?

If any in-person care is needed, such as bloodwork, vaccinations, or other testing, our providers are able to send the appropriate request to a nearby lab. Results will be integrated with our HIPAA-compliant mobile app so that patients have access to all of their medical records in one secure place.

What states do you operate in?

To see our list of currently available states, begin booking an appointment.

You must be currently residing in the state of treatment as well as have your primary pharmacy be in that same state in order to be a patient at our practice.

How long are the appointments?

The first intake appointment is 30 minutes. Follow-up appointments are 20 minutes each.

Billing

How do I know how much my specific appointment will cost?

We provide a cost estimate when you are booking your appointment. For those with insurance, your actual cost is determined after we submit the insurance claim for your appointment. Once we submit the claim, insurance companies will pay for a portion of the appointment and pass on any remaining cost to you. Once we know what this cost is, we will update you with an invoice within the app.

When do I get charged for my appointment?

For those with insurance, it typically takes 1-3 weeks for the insurance claim to be processed. Once processed, we’ll send you an invoice within the app with any remaining costs. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

For those without insurance (or with out of network insurance), we will send you the invoice 1-2 days after your appointment is completed. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

Insurance

What insurance do you accept?

We accept over 1,500+ insurance plans. We cover most of the major PPO insurance companies (payors) across the United States. The best way to confirm coverage of your insurance plan is to begin booking an appointment on our website or via our mobile app. During the booking process, you’ll be prompted to enter your insurance information for a real-time verification of your insurance plan.

What if I am having issues verifying my insurance plan coverage?

The best way to confirm your insurance plan coverage is to call the Member Services phone number on the back of your insurance card. If needed, you can reference our Tax ID#: 474883537 and our NPI: 1134596091. Once you are able to confirm your coverage and your primary care copay costs, you can use the in-app chat to message our team with the information. We’ll then follow up with confirmation.

What is the total cost of diagnosis and treatment?

Your per-appointment costs are set by your insurance plan. If the costs seem high, you may be on a high deductible health plan (HDHP). This means that you have an annual out-of-pocket amount that you must pay on healthcare in a given year before your insurance plan will cover more of your per-appointment costs. 

If you are on an HDHP and have confirmed your insurance information in our mobile app, your remaining deductible for the year will be displayed on the “Book Appointment” page. Note that this amount may be outdated if you have had recent insurance claims processed.

The convenience is amazing. I can always find an appointment with the same person at a time that works best for my schedule. Also, I love the ability to text questions whenever I want. I get answers within the same day. Sometimes in an hour. It feels like a concierge service. I can call whenever I want. Make an appointment when I want, and get quick answers to all of my questions.

June

An extremely caring company, very responsive and went above and beyond when I was in crisis. Cannot recommend them enough!! Keep up the great work.

Walter

My provider! I have felt heard, believed and taken care of by her. I am so happy to telehealth and having access to a wonderful provider through Circle Medical.

Mithra

It’s just easy for a working mom in between calls when I have about 20 mins or so to actually care for myself and my health right from home.

Jess

It’s very convenient and flexible. The providers are very compassionate and foster an open environment that allows patients to take control of their health and well-being.

Jose

I have had a wonderful experience with Circle Medical since I joined on this past February. If I have any questions, the chat feature is great because I receive a quick response. My provider is wonderful. She's been so helpful in my diagnosing and treating my ADHD, but we have also talked about other health issues/concerns and come up with some great solutions. Our monthly video conferences are convenient (much easier than taking off work to go into a doctor's office). I hope to continue using Circle Medical for a time to come.

Emelia

It is so difficult to access mental health care services right now especially for ADHD, so far I have received immediate and responsive care that has already improved my quality of life, thank you.

Eric

Appointment availability. I cannot get an in-person appointment in my city for 6 weeks. This app allowed me to connect with a medical professional the next day. (Same-day was available as well.) And professionalism. I felt that in my two appointments I was treated with respect, not judged, and I was able to express my issues and thoughts to someone who was actually listening.

Why Skin Care Matters

It's your largest organ

Skin makes up almost 15% of a person’s weight. It is the immune system’s first line of defense against infection, and interacts with nearly every other organ and system that works to keep us healthy. 

Skin conditions can be a warning sign

Because of its key role in your body’s immune system, changes to your skin can often be an early indicator of undiagnosed health issues, where early diagnosis and treatment can have the greatest impact.

Healthy skin is a keystone of overall health

With countless interrelationships to your body’s other systems, changes to your skin can often be related to seasonal, chronic, or other complex conditions. By making skincare a part of your health plan, you are more likely to catch early symptoms and find effective treatments.
