How to Identify and Help Prevent Eczema
What Is Eczema?
Eczema is a term for a group of medical conditions that cause the skin to become inflamed or irritated. Itchiness is almost always a symptom of eczema, which either precedes or leads to the appearance of a rash that can occur on the face, back of the knees, wrists, hands, or feet. Pain, swelling, small blisters, and dry or flaking skin are also common symptoms of eczema.
What Causes Eczema?
The exact cause of eczema is unknown, but it is most commonly linked to the overactive response of the body’s immune system to an irritant, such as soap, detergent, or animal dander. In some instances the allergies or asthma that cause eczema are thought to be hereditary. Stress and upper respiratory infections can also trigger symptoms. Eczema is not considered to be contagious.
