Eczema

What is Eczema?

A very common condition affecting all ages and characterized by sensitive skin which becomes easily inflamed, red, scaly and itchy. The word ‘atopic’ means there is a genetic tendency for excess inflammation in the skin resulting in Eczema and a positive sensitivity in the lungs (asthma) and nose causing hay fever. Eczema may be present on the face in infants, on creases and folds in young children, and in localized areas such as hand dermatitis or in more generalized areas on adults.

Approximately 10% to 20% of the world population is affected by this chronic, relapsing, and very itchy rash at some point during childhood. However, many children with this condition find that the disease clears and often disappears with age.

One of the most essential goals during treatment is to prevent scratching. Due to eczema causing the skin to become dry and itchy, treatment usually consists of applying lotions and creams to keep the skin more moist. Cold compresses can also be used to help relieve itching. If initial treatment does not prove successful, or the condition worsens, another possible treatment involves the application of non-prescription corticosteroid creams and ointments to reduce inflammation.
