Atopic Dermatitis – Eczema

Atopic dermatitis (Eczema), a very common skin disease, usually occurs in people who have a family history of allergies, such as hay fever, hives, or asthma. The cause is unknown, but it is thought to be inherited. Eczema treatment of various kinds is readily available; contact us for diagnosis and treatment.

When atopic dermatitis, or (Eczema), occurs, the skin is reacting to an internal or external stimulus, resulting in inflammation and in some cases, severe itching. Symptoms can range from a rash to patches of dry, thickened skin.

Atopic dermatitis (Eczema) is most often seen in children, adolescents, and young adults. Over half of affected infants recover before age 5, and most other patients recover before the age of 25. Some patients, however, suffer from periodic recurring eczema throughout life. Factors known to trigger recurrences are extreme heat or cold, rapid changes in temperature, irritating clothing, or periods of physical or emotional stress.
