What is Eczema?

Eczema is a medical condition in which patches of skin become rough and inflamed, with blisters that cause itching and bleeding, and skin crusting sometimes resulting from a reaction to irritation but more typically having no obvious external cause.


It’s important to keep your skin moisturized, and avoid picking and scratching at the rash. Moisturizers can be used to reduce inflammation and itching. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Eczema

Eczema is a general term used to describe a group of skin conditions characterized by inflammation of the outer layer of the skin called the epidermis. This inflammation leads to a variety of unpleasant signs and symptoms including red skin, skin thickening, an itchy rash, blistering and skin crusting. There are a number of different types with the most common being atopic eczema. This form is more common in people with a history of allergies or hay fever. Eczema is a chronic condition that can be successfully treated in most cases.

What Causes Eczema?

No one knows the exact cause of atopic eczema, but there seems to be a genetic susceptibility to the disease that’s triggered by some environmental factor or factors. In someone who’s genetically susceptible, an irritant in the environment seems to stimulate the immune system, causing it to overreact. This leads to chronic inflammation and the unpleasant symptoms of eczema.
