Eczema is an inflammation of the skin which may cause dryness, flakiness, heat, and probably most importantly, itching . Dermatitis is a term which is sometimes connected, in people's minds, with exposure to chemicals. It really only means inflammation of the skin , and could be used interchangeably with eczema, as it often is by doctors. Eczema can be caused by a number of different factors, and may result in just a small patch of skin being affected, but can affect skin anywhere on the body.
Whatever causes your eczema, it leads to itching and redness, and may make the skin dry and flaky. Sometimes, itchy blisters form. When these burst, or when scratching damages the skin, the surface may be left moist and crusty. Often, in the commonest form of eczema (atopic eczema), the problem is worst in the folds of the skin where your limbs bend. The itch is intense, and makes you want to scratch. You should avoid this if you possibly can, as scratching only makes the symptoms worse. People say that if you have to do anything, gentle rubbing, with the flat of your hands, is better than scratching. Whatever the cause of your eczema, the skin becomes more sensitive, and you may well notice that you are more easily upset by cosmetics, soaps, detergents, etc.

Eczema, or dermatitis as it is sometimes called, is a group of skin conditions which can affect all age groups. In the United Kingdom, up to one fifth of all children of school age have eczema, along with about one in twelve of the adult population. The severity of the disease can vary. In mild forms the skin is dry, hot and itchy, whilst in more severe forms the skin can become broken, raw and bleeding. Although it can sometimes look unpleasant, eczema is not contagious. With treatment the inflammation of eczema can be reduced, though the skin will always be sensitive to flare-ups and need extra care.

Eczema Overview
Eczema is an allergic condition that affects the skin. Another name for eczema is dermatitis. Dermatitis is inflammation of the skin. There are several different types of dermatitis, but the one people usually mean when they say eczema is atopic dermatitis. Atopic refers to a lifelong tendency to allergic conditions such as asthma and allergic rhinitis (hay fever). Eczema can be triggered by just about anything coming in contact with the skin. It occurs in atopic people, who are extra sensitive to skin irritation. Dry, flaky skin appears over red, inflamed areas, causing intense itching and burning. Eczema is a very common condition, and it affects all races and ages, including young infants. About 1-2 percent of adults have eczema, and as many as 20 percent of children are affected. It usually begins early in life, even before asthma or hay fever. Most affected individuals have their first episode before age 5 years. For some, the disease will improve with time. For others, however, eczema is a chronic or recurrent disorder. Although it can occur just once, it usually occurs on and off throughout life, or lasts the entire lifetime.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top Eczema is most common in infants, and at least half of those cases clear by age 36 months. In adults, it is generally a chronic or recurring condition. A hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy ) occurs in the skin, causing chronic inflammation. The inflammation causes the skin to become itchy and scaly. Chronic irritation and scratching can cause the skin to thicken and become leathery-textured.

An extensive new survey has found that parents of children with atopic dermatitis and treating physicians desire safer, more effective therapies that would be suitable for managing the chronic condition over the long term. The survey results, presented tomorrow at the 58th annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology, found an overwhelming majority (98 percent) of physicians (n=303) cited long-term use of oral and topical steroids as their major concern in treating children with atopic dermatitis, commonly known as eczema. This concern was reflected in prescribing patterns, with 47 percent of physicians responding that prescribing is influenced "a lot" by their concerns, and 36 percent reporting they were "very much" influenced by the concerns, on a scale that ranged from "not at all" to "very much." Robert McAlister, Executive Director, National Eczema Association for Science and Education (NEASE), which conducted the survey, explained that the mainstay of current treatment regimens for atopic dermatitis is corticosteroids, but they pose side effects for children and infants, who are most commonly affected by the condition.
