What is Eczema?
Eczema is a broad term used to refer to a wide range of chronic skin inflammation conditions. Although eczema can affect people of any age, the majority of cases occur during infancy and during the reproductive age window of 15 to 49 years. Symptoms can include dryness, recurring rashes, redness, swelling, crusting, flaking, and blistering. Thought to be genetic, this disorder can also be caused by stress, contact with irritants, and extreme temperatures.
