Atopic Eczema

Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, is a chronic skin condition marked by itchy, red, and inflamed patches. It often begins in childhood but can persist into adulthood. The condition arises from a mix of genetic, environmental, and immune factors. Common symptoms include dry, scaly skin, frequently affecting the face, neck, hands, and the insides of the elbows and knees. Severe itching can lead to scratching, worsening the irritation and increasing the risk of infection. Managing atopic dermatitis involves regular moisturizing, using topical corticosteroids, and taking antihistamines to reduce itching. Avoiding known triggers like certain soaps, fabrics, and stress is also essential. Effective treatment can significantly alleviate symptoms, improving the quality of life for those affected.
