Eczema & Dermatitis

The skin becomes itchy and inflamed, which can cause redness, swelling, cracking, weeping, crusting, and scaling.

Dermatitis and eczema can be caused by many factors, either internal (eg. overactive allergic response) or external (eg. from contact with an irritant, such as cleaning products). Dryness or overheating can often cause or aggravate dermatitis and eczema. Even if no cause is identified, the rash can often be treated successfully.

Dermatitis and eczema most often affect infants and young children who will eventually grow out of it, but sometimes the condition can continue into adulthood or show up later in life. 

Adults often get contact dermatitis - a reaction that includes redness, itching, and burning after the skin has come into contact with an allergen, or an irritant such as a cleaning agent. This type of dermatitis especially affects the hands and is most severe on the most used hand.

Eczema and dermatitis are usually not caused by food allergies.

Treatment of dermatitis and eczema mostly involves decreasing redness and itchiness, minimizing dryness, and avoiding any aggravating factors.
