What is Eczema?

Eczema is a chronic skin condition characterized by red, itchy, and inflamed patches of skin. It is most common in children but can also affect adults. The exact cause of eczema remains unknown, though genetics are believed to play a role, as well as environmental factors such as contact with irritants or allergens.


There is no cure for eczema, but the condition can be managed with proper treatment. Treatment options range from lifestyle modifications to topical medications and even light therapy. If left untreated, eczema can result in open sores on the skin, increased itchiness and discomfort, and difficulty sleeping due to itching at night.
