Eczema refers to a condition called atopic dermatitis and is a skin disorder which causes inflammation of the epidermis and is characterized initially by redness and itching, formation of minute papules which ooze and later crust and scale. Eczema commonly occurs during childhood and continues into adulthood. It affects both males and females equally. It is more prevalent in dry climates and is triggered by certain foods and environmental conditions like pollen and smoke. Stress can worsen the condition. Eczema can be treated with home remedies; but, activated home remedies are quicker in treating this condition.
Eczema is caused by a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. Irritants like shampoos, soaps, detergents; allergens like dust mites, dandruff, pets, pollen; Microbes and certain fungi; extremes of temperature and foods like dairy products, nuts, soya, and wheat can trigger eczema. Hormonal changes can also lead to eczema symptoms. In children eczema appears as rashes on the cheeks, scalp, neck and the creases of elbows and knees. Further these rashes develop into bumps which can change color or ooze fluid. They then thicken into knots with an itching sensation. In adults rashes can appear all over the body but can be more prominent on the neck, face and surrounding the eyes. They can be extremely itchy and cause scales on the skin which lead to skin infections. Scratching the skin can exacerbate the symptoms.
