What is Eczema? Eczema also known as dermatitis is a dry skin condition which is an inflammation of the skin. It is not contagious so you cannot catch it from someone else. There are different types of eczema and the most common type is atopic eczema. Atopic Eczema Atopic eczema is a genetic condition based on the interaction between a number of genes and environmental factors. In this type of eczema there is a typical pattern of skin inflammation which causes the symptoms. In most cases there will be a family history of either eczema or one of the other ‘atopic’ conditions i.e. asthma or hay fever. Symptoms of Eczema In mild cases of eczema, the skin is dry, scaly, red and itchy. In more severe cases there may be weeping, crusting and bleeding. Constant scratching causes the skin to split and bleed and also leaves it open to infection. Causes of Atopic Eczema The oily barrier of the skin tends to be reduced in people with atopic eczema. This leads to an increase in water loss and a tendency towards dry skin. Also, some cells of the immune system release chemicals under the skin surface, which can cause some inflammation. Who Can Get Eczema? Eczema affects people of all ages but is primarily seen in children. It is a highly individual condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms. Those who “grow out” of their eczema during early childhood may see it recur again in later life. Treatment for Eczema Avoiding irritants to the skin and other triggers wherever possible. Moisturisers – used every day to help prevent inflammation developing. Steroid creams and ointments – mainly used when inflammation flares up. Do You Want To Get Rid of Eczema Naturally?
