What is Eczema / Atopic Dermatitis?

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a condition that causes red, itchy skin. It's common in children but can occur at any age.

Symptoms tend to be chronic or long lasting but may be episodic. Sufferers of eczema tend to have other allergies, such as asthma or hay fever.

How can eczema be treated?

No cure has been found for eczema. But treatments and self-care measures can relieve itching and prevent new outbreaks. For example, it helps to avoid harsh soaps, moisturize your skin regularly, and apply medicated creams or ointments.
