Eczema, also called atopic dermatitis, is a type of inflammation of the skin. This skin condition tends to be chronic with periodic flare-ups. Symptoms of the affected areas include redness, dry and often thickened skin, lumps or blisters with weeping or crusty areas. Normally, skin protects people from bacteria but in eczema patients, the dry skin reduces this effective barrier. Causes may include immune system disorders, heredity or environmental conditions. Eczema is a common problem but it is not contagious. Although eczema cannot be cured, a dermatologist can provide a proper diagnosis and a treatment plan to manage your eczema and control flare-ups.
