Eczema is a common, chronic skin disease that produces very itchy, dry, inflamed skin especially in creases such as the neck, knees and elbows.
The symptoms of eczema can vary from person to person but usually include red, inflamed skin with a recurring rash and scaly areas. An eczema rash can look different from time to time and can range from being mild to severe. One thing that eczema is known for is an intense itch which makes some sufferers scratch until they bleed, leading to even more inflammation and itching.
The exact cause of eczema is unknown, but if you or your family suffer from this condition it is important to take care of your skin. Taking regular baths in warm (and not hot) water and keeping your skin moisturised will help to keep it hydrated and alleviate your symptoms.
