Eczema is a skin disease caused by atopic dermatitis, and Atopic is related to allergies, which are often caused by genetic causes.
This type of eczema is most likely to appear after other symptoms that indicate allergic reactions
(such as Asthma or hay fever, also called: allergic rhinitis, allergic rhinitis, hay fever, hay fever, Hay fever).
Eczema generally causes skin irritation and itchiness, redness and dryness to the point where cracks and cysts appear
(scabs – crust formed over an ulcer or wound – Scab, Crust) on the skin.
Eczema disease, in particular, appears on the face and extremities, but it can also appear in other areas of the body.
Many people suffer from chronic eczema. Eczema is a very common phenomenon in children, but it usually disappears and disappears, before reaching school age (5 – 6 years).
In most cases of eczema, itching appears before the rash appears.
Eczema is usually accompanied by the following symptoms:
Patches on the skin itchy, dry, the skin in and around them thicker than normal.
They generally appear on the hands, neck, face and legs.
In children, it may also appear on the inner side of the knee and elbow joints.
Itching may lead to wounds and ulcers covered by the scabs.
Causes and risk factors for Eczema disease
As with asthma, eczema is also a genetic phenomenon that is passed on from generation to generation.
There is a specific set of genes that lead to certain people with very sensitive skin,
in particular, and certain social and environmental factors, such as stress and others, that stimulate and trigger episodes of eczema.
A pediatrician, dermatologist or family doctor (who permanently treats the person concerned), can diagnose eczema.
Given that many people with eczema also suffer from other allergies,
the doctor may order hypersensitivity tests to find out and determine the factors that stimulate eczema, trigger it and cause its appearance.
These hypersensitivity tests are performed, in most cases, in children with eczema.
