What is Eczema?
Eczema mostly affects children. Here, the skin becomes itchy, red and dry. The most common area affected is the back and front of the knees.Although it can affect any part of the body. Flare ups occur when the condition becomes more acute. The cause is unknown. However, it has been linked to allergies.
Eczema (also known as dermatitis) is a dry skin condition. It is a highly individual condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms. It is not contagious so you cannot catch it from someone else.
In mild cases of eczema, the skin is dry, scaly, red and itchy. In more severe cases there may be weeping, crusting and bleeding. Constant scratching causes the skin to split and bleed and also leaves it open to infection.
Eczema affects people of all ages but is primarily seen in children. Those who “grow out” of their eczema during early childhood may see it recur again in later life.
How to treat Eczema.
There is no cure for Eczema, However, use creams such as Hydrocortisone 1% Cream / ointment to control the symptoms and reduce inflammation and itching.
For some people with eczema, the regular use of emollients is all that is needed to keep the condition under control.
However, for many people there will be a time when a steroid preparation is required as part of their treatment in order to bring an eczema flare under control. Topical steroids are the most common treatment for eczema flares. This is when eczema becomes red, sore and very itchy.
Topical steroids are used in short treatment bursts and should be used in conjunction with emollients. Emollients for washing, cleansing and moisturizing are essential to a good skin care routine for treating and preventing dry and itchy skin.Emollients need to be used all the time.
