Eczema is a skin condition caused by inflammation of the skin. Eczema symptoms include itchy, red, and dry skin caused by inflammation. It’s most commonly found in children, although adults can get it. It is also called atopic dermatitis and is treated with oral medications, steroid creams and light therapy .

Eczema is a chronic problem for many people. It is most common in infants, many of whom outgrow it before adulthood.
Factors that may trigger eczema include:

  • Stress
  • Contact with irritating substances such as woolen and synthetic fabrics and soap
  • Heat and sweat
  • Cold, dry climates
  • Dry skin

If scratched, dry patches of skin and open sores with crusts may develop and may get infected. Patches of chronically itchy, dry, thickened skin, usually on the hands, neck, face, and legs (but it can occur anywhere). In children, the inner creases of the knees and elbows are often involved.
