What is Eczema?
Eczema can appear on any part of the body. It causes skin to become itchy, red, and dry; even cracked and leathery. Eczema is sometimes referred to as “the itch that rashes,” since the itch, when scratched, results in the appearance of the rash.
Eczema is a chronic problem for many people. It is most common in infants.
People with eczema have a higher risk of developing allergic conditions like asthma or hay fever.
