Eczema

Eczema is a s skin disorder that appears as dry, reddened skin, sometimes with a scale and crust. Intense itching or pruritus can be present, which can lead to scratching and skin infections.

Eczema usually occurs on the face, neck and insides of the elbows, knees and ankles and in the United States alone affects more than 15 million people of all ages. In my experience, it usually is hereditary.

A highly allergic type of eczema is called Atopic Dermatitis. People with this condition usually flare with change or extremes such as very hot or very cold weather or stress and can be especially sensitive to fuzzy clothing and skin infections.

Treatment options for eczema include a new class of drugs called topical immunomodulators, which suppress the skin's immune response as well as
photo or light therapy including both ultraviolet B & A light waves. Topical medications including cortisone, tars and emollients and moisturizers are frequently utilized.
