What Is Eczema?

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a condition that causes patches of skin to become irritated. This irritation causes the affected patches to become visibly inflamed, red, cracked, and rough. Often these patches are also itchy, scratching can cause these symptoms to become worse. In some cases, these patches can even break the skin, causing blistering and bleeding. This condition is most often developed in early childhood and appears more frequently in patients with a family history of this condition. While this condition can cause a rash to appear anywhere on the body, the most common place patients will develop an eczema rash is on the arms and behind the knees. Some patients outgrow this condition but others will have it for the duration of their life.

Eczema Facts

 

Triggers: Certain foods, such as nuts and dairy have been linked to symptoms of eczema. Additionally, environmental factors such as smoke, pollen, and dander have also been known to be irritants that can lead to an eczema outbreak.

 

Symptoms of Eczema Vary: Many factors, including age, health, and history of a patient, can go into determining the severity and type of symptoms a patient may experience. Some patients will have small and sudden outbreaks that do not last, while others may experience more severe episodes of eczema outbreaks.

 

There Is No Cure For Eczema: When it comes to treating eczema, doctors can only help to identify your triggers and alleviate the discomfort of your symptoms. There is no cure, but through management of symptoms it can be treated.

 

Eczema Is Not Contagious: Eczema is often hereditary but is not a contagious skin condition. Talk to your doctor to learn more about how you can alleviate your symptoms and get relief for your eczema.
