Eczema is a dry, itchy, scaly rash that occurs both in children and adults. It is usually the result of an allergic reaction to eating certain foods or direct contact with skin irritants, which can be anything from clothing and detergent to a pet or perfume. Eczema can be treated with topical creams, steroid injections, oral medicines, holistic remedies and dietary changes.
Eczema is a term for many types of skin inflammation, and the word is interchangeable with the term dermatitis. The most usual form of eczema is atopic dermatitis. The word atopic means that a sufferer has a heredity or genetic predisposition to react to certain allergens.
