Eczema is a condition where the skin is itchy, red, and dry. It occurs in infants, children, and adults. It is more common in individuals with a personal or family history of allergies, hay fever, and asthma. Patients with eczema tend to be sensitive to personal hygiene products with fragrances. It is key to keep the skin well moisturized to prevent eczema flare ups, but sometimes even with excellent motorization, flares will occur. Weather changes, stress, and environmental factors can contribute to flares. The mainstays of treatments are medicated topical creams combined with oral medications when needed. Light therapy is also effective when topical treatments alone are not effective.
