Understanding Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)

Eczema Clinical Trial Involves Two Study-related Creams

What is Eczema?

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a common skin condition that causes dry, red, itchy, flaky skin. These symptoms will often lead to infection causing small blisters to form that may ooze or crust over. The severity of eczema depends upon how large an area of the skin is affected.  The more common places for eczema to appear are the face, neck, legs, arms, and scalp. Over-the-counter moisturizers will not relieve the most severe cases of eczema.

While there is no exact known cause of eczema, people who suffer with this skin condition often have a family history of allergies such as hay fever. Eczema is thought to be a type of allergic reaction. Factors such as temperature change, food, harsh soaps, sweat, and stress can all cause eczema to flare up. There is no cure for eczema, however, there are treatment options available.
