Eczema, also known as dermatitis, is a skin condition characterized by itchy, red, and dry rashy skin. These symptoms are caused by inflammation. Some eczema, such as atopic dermatitis, is long-term and chronic, typically appearing in children. Other types, such as contact dermatitis, are caused by an allergic reaction to a substance that has come in contact with the skin. Treatment involves moisturizers and specific prescriptions to combat the inflammation and other symptoms*.
