Eczema often begins in childhood and can alternately improve and worsen throughout life. During an eczema flare-up skin can become unbearably itchy and sensitive, which can make the condition even worse. Therefore, it is essential to keep the skin healthy.
What is Eczema?
Eczema, also known as dermatitis, is a type of inflammatory skin condition. It has been known to affect all ages and can vary in regards to its severity. Eczema occurs commonly in infants between 1 month to 1 year. Although a majority of these children will outgrow eczema before 3 years of age, it can still flareup at any time thereafter. Unfortunately in adults, eczema is considered a chronic recurring skin disorder. When present in the mild form, eczema can cause skin to become hot, dry and itchy. While in the severe form, it can become raw, broken and bleeding. When there is chronic irritation along with scratching, the skin can thicken and acquire a leathery texture. The primary problem with this skin condition is dryness of the skin which can be aggravated by conditions that are either extremely hot and dry or cold.
What Causes Eczema?
Eczema can occur for no specific reason or an allergic reaction to various things such as food, lotions, detergents, animal dander, plants, stress, etc. Although the exact cause is not known at this time, risk factors include a family history of eczema, a family history of allergies, abrupt changes in temperature, emotional stress and allergic reactions. Dry skin will make the condition worse. In many case, the skin will become secondarily infected because of scratching.
