What is Eczema?
Eczema is a skin condition caused by inflammation of the skin. Typically, eczema causes skin to become itchy, red, and dry -- even cracked and leathery. Eczema can appear on any part of the body.
Most people that deal with eczema, it is a chronic problem, most infants that have eczema outgrow it before adulthood. People with eczema have a higher risk of developing allergic conditions like asthma or hay fever. Of the many types of eczema, the most common is Atopic Dermatitis

What Causes Eczema?

Eczema is a hereditary condition and runs in many families. Some genes may cause some people to have extra-sensitive skin, another cause may be an overactive immune system. It is thought that skin defects contribute to eczema by allowing moisture out through the skin germs in.
Some factors that may trigger eczema include:
  • Stress
  • Contact with irritating substances
  • Heat and sweat
  • Cold, dry climates
  • Dry skin
What Are the Symptoms of Eczema?
Almost always, your skin will itch before a rash appears in eczema. Typically, eczema shows itself as:
Patches of chronically itchy, dry, thickened skin, usually on the hands, neck, face, and legs in children, the inner creases of the knees and elbows may often involved.
If scratched, dry patches of skin and open sores with crusts may develop and may get infected.

You develop yellowish to light brown crust or pus-filled blisters over existing patches of eczema, this may indicate a bacterial infection. During a flare-up of eczema, you are exposed to anyone with a viral skin disease such as cold sores or genital herpes. You develop numerous painful, small, fluid-filled blisters in the areas of eczema, this may be an indication that you have eczema herpeticum, a rare but potentially serious complication caused by the herpes simplex virus.
