Eczema is a very common condition. Also known as atopic dermatitis, it’s an inflammation of the skin that causes itchiness and an unsightly red rash. Blisters, itching, and swelling can occur, with varying levels of intensity. Causes of eczema include allergies, genetic predispositions, slow blood flow and chemical irritants. Exact origins are often hard to identify, which can be frustrating for sufferers. In children particularly, the itching can cause scratching and bleeding, which leads to scarring.
How is it treated?
There are a variety of treatments available. A doctor can prescribe creams and ointments to reduce inflammation and relieve itching. Regular bathing, avoidance of harsh soaps, use of prescribed moisturisers, cortisones, steroids and immunosuppressants can all be utilised to help treat eczema. Oil-based moisturisers are often recommended for twice daily application.
