Understanding Eczema

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition that results in dry, itchy, and inflamed skin. It can affect individuals of all ages, from infants to adults. Here’s what you need to know:

Common Triggers of Eczema:

  • Genetics: A family history of eczema or related conditions can increase the risk.
  • Allergens: Allergens like pollen, dust mites, and pet dander can trigger eczema flare-ups.
  • Irritants: Harsh soaps, detergents, and certain fabrics can irritate the skin.

Effective Eczema Treatment and Management

Managing eczema involves a combination of skincare practices, lifestyle adjustments, and medications. Here are some strategies for addressing eczema:

  1. Skincare: Use gentle, fragrance-free moisturizers and cleansers to keep the skin hydrated and avoid irritation.
  2. Avoid Triggers: Identify and avoid triggers that worsen eczema symptoms, such as certain foods or environmental factors.
  3. Medications: Topical corticosteroids, topical calcineurin inhibitors, and oral antihistamines can help alleviate symptoms during flare-ups.
