What is Eczema?


Eczema (also known as dermatitis) is a non-contagious skin condition. It is a highly individual condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms. It is not contagious so you cannot catch it from someone else. The word eczema comes from the Greek word “ekzein”, which means “to boil.” In mild cases of eczema, the skin is dry, scaly, red and itchy. In more severe cases there may be weeping, crusting and bleeding. Constant scratching causes the skin to split and bleed and also leaves it open to infection. Eczema affects people of all ages and ethnicities. Many people who “grow out” of their eczema during early childhood may see it recur in later life. Atopic eczema is a genetic condition based on the interaction between several genes and environmental factors. In most cases there will be a family history of either eczema or one of the other ‘atopic’ conditions i.e asthma or hay fever.




What are the signs of eczema?


In mild cases of eczema, the skin is dry, scaly, red and itchy. In more severe cases there may be weeping sores, crusting and bleeding. Some people only have small patches of dry skin, while others experience widespread inflamed skin all over the body. Inflamed skin can become red on lighter skin, and darker on brown skin. Although eczema can affect any part of the body, it most often affects the hands, inside of the elbows, backs of the knees, and the face and scalp. People with eczema sometimes have periods when symptoms are less noticeable, as well as periods when symptoms become severe (flare-ups).
