Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)
Eczema is a chronic skin disorder that can affect anyone of any age, ethnicity or gender. The condition appears as a dry skin rash, often with a red and scaly appearance, anywhere on the body or face. Eczema is a common complaint, with an estimated 1 in 9 of us having had an outbreak at some point in our lives.
The term ‘eczema’ broadly applies to a range of persistent skin conditions also known as ‘atopic dermatitis’ which causes a variety of symptoms from dryness, redness, swelling, itching, crusting, oozing or bleeding. These conditions can lead to scarring and discolouration of the skin as a result of persistent scratching or rubbing.
When it comes to remedying eczema, it is important to recognise the condition early so you can start treatment.
