What is Eczema?
The skin condition causes blood vessels to swell and irritates nerve endings. The underlying cause of eczema is an excessive reaction by the immune system, which results in an inflammation of the skin. Many factors are at cause, with genetics, environment and impaired immune responses being the most predominant.
Eczema is a skin condition which has several categories. The two most prevalent ones are Atopic eczema and Contact eczema (Hand eczema). Atopic eczema (also known as Atopic Dermatitis) is a problem which occurs from birth. 75% of all sufferers are babies and toddlers.
Hand- and Contact eczema occurs 10% of the time and is seen more often with adults, as it is frequently related to one’s profession (e.g. hairdresser). Contact eczema can be the result of an allergic or irritant reaction to one or various substances or products. Eczema can’t be cured, but it can be managed!
Several treatments for eczema symptoms are possible.
