ECZEMA Overview

WHAT IS ECZEMA?


Atopic dermatitis starts with dry skin that is often very itchy and scratching causes the dry skin to become red and irritated, inflamed. Over time, a recurring rash can lead to tough and thickened skin. The cause of it is unknown but it affects the skin's ability to hold moisture.

In Atopic dermatitis skin typically appears as inflamed, itchy, cracked, rough with occasional blisters.

Atopy is a genetic disposition to form excessive IgE which leads to a generalized and prolonged hypersensitivity to common environmental antigens like pollens, house dust mites etc.

Atopic individuals manifest one or more groups of diseases including

  • hay fever
  • asthma
  • urticaria
  • allergies

Most people who have atopic dermatitis have a personal or family history of allergies, such as hay fever (allergic dermatitis) or asthma.

Things that may make atopic dermatitis worse include:

  • Allergen such as dust mite or animal dander
