What is Eczema?
Also known as dermatitis, eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by dry skin with very itchy red patches that may ooze, become scaly, crusted or hardened. Eczema can affect any part of the body.
Causes of Eczema and Triggers:
Although genetic, immunological and environmental factors play a key role, the specific cause of eczema is not known.
While normal skin is supple, fairly waterproof, and offers protection from the outside world, skin that is affected by eczema is usually dry, cracked, and the protective outer layer (also known as the skin barrier) is damaged. Because of this, the skin loses moisture, resulting in dry, cracked skin.
Eczema symptoms tend to come and go. Reappearing or worsening symptoms are known as a “flare-up.” Many factors may trigger an eczema flare-up; these can include soaps, detergents, abrasive clothing, perfume, dust, excessive sweating or low humidity. Irritated skin itches, causing you to scratch the affected area. Scratching worsens the condition and skin becomes inflamed, worsening the itch. This is called the “itch-scratch cycle,” which can become severe and cause pain.
