What is Eczema?
Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition, characterized by dry skin with red and itchy patches. Atopic dermatitis (AD) is the most common type of eczema. The word “atopic” refers to a collection of diseases involving the immune system, and the word “dermatitis” means inflammation of the skin. Eczema can range from mild, when patches of skin are slightly dry, itchy, and red, to severe, when patches of skin are extremely irritated, cracked, and oozing. Eczema most often develops in childhood and may or may not continue into adulthood. People with eczema often experience periods of time when their condition flares up, often triggered by environmental factors such as the weather, certain foods, stress, hormones, irritants, and allergens.
