is a form of dermatitis that often appears on the face, chest or arms. It is often
referred to as atopic dermatitis. Some studies indicate that food allergies may
trigger atopic dermatitis.
Common symptoms of eczema include: - dry
skin - vesicles (tiny bumps) accompanied with itching - itchy skin rashes -
redness and/or discoloration of skin
Dry skin can exacerbate eczema. Moisturizers
can help affected areas by promoting skin healing and relief of itching.
Most eczema resources and clinical sources advise avoiding harsh skin cleansers,
detergents or soap. Since each case is unique and complex to the individual, consult
a dermatologist or physician for treatment and/or diagnosis (no cure is presently
known for most types of dermatitis).
