What is eczema?
Eczema is a skin condition that causes patches of inflamed, itchy, red, cracked, and rough skin. Symptoms can vary, depending on age. Eczema most commonly develops before the age of 5 with dry and scaly patches visible on the skin that are very itchy. This can continue to develop into adolescence; however symptoms are often different to those experienced by children.
Eczema sufferers will often experience periods where their symptoms flare up, followed by periods where their symptoms will improve and clear. It is not contagious, nor can it be cured, however it can be managed.
