What are eczema and atopic dermatitis?

Eczema is the name for a group of inflammatory skin conditions that cause sore, itchy, dry, and irritated skin. Atopic dermatitis (also known as atopic eczema) is the most common type of eczema.

What are the symptoms of eczema?

The severity of eczema varies from person to person. Those with mild eczema may only experience small areas of dry skin that itch occasionally. In other more severe cases, eczema may cause a widespread inflammation of the skin and constant itching. You might also experience periods when the symptoms are less noticeable, as well as periods when they become more severe.

What causes eczema?

The exact cause of eczema is not known, however, we do know that people develop eczema because of genes and environmental triggers. Atopic eczema is the result of an overactive immune system, causing the skin to become dry and itchy. You have an increased chance of developing atopic eczema if you inherit these genes.

There are also a number of things that can possibly trigger symptoms of eczema including soaps and detergents, dust, food allergies, clothing, and even hormones.
