Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)
Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema is a common condition affecting the skin’s ability to react accordingly to external irritants, allergens, and bacteria. When skin is healthy it is able to retain moisture and protect the body from external irritants, allergens, and bacteria; however, in people with eczema, the skin’s ability to protect against external factors is compromised due to a genetic mutation (Mayo Clinic, 2018). This condition occurs commonly in childhood and can persist into adulthood ranging from mild to severe with periodic flare-ups of symptoms. The most common signs and symptoms are:
- Dry Skin
- Red to Brownish-Gray Patchy Skin
- Small Raised Bumps
- Cracked or Scaly Skin
These symptoms are occasionally present on the face, neck, hands, wrists, feet, ankles, inside the crevices of the elbows and knees (Mayo Clinic, 2018). It isn’t common, but eczema can also present on the face and in the genital region (Eczema Treatments from U.S. Dermatology Partners, 2019). For people that have eczema, it can sometimes be something that can be managed and lived with minimal consequences. For others their eczema can be severe, and serious, compromising their health.
Eczema is a condition in itself, but it’s connection to more debilitating health conditions make eczema serious health concern that must be treated. Eczema can easily be associated with allergies, skin infections, and asthma. Eczema is sometimes seen in children with allergies, and their symptoms can become worse after being exposed to an allergen. Not only that, but eczema can be linked to having a higher risk factor for skin infections, especially if a person frequently scratches the skin affected by asthma several causing breaks in the skin. The most serious of all, asthma is most frequently seen in those suffering from eczema where both conditions make the other worse (Mayo Clinic, 2018). Whether you have eczema, or eczema and one of its associated conditions, it is important to treat your eczema. Treatment can be as simple as washing areas affected by eczema with water and soap that will not dry out the skin. In moderate to severe cases treatment for eczema is more likely to include over the counter creams. If consulting a doctor on treatments you can also be prescribed ointments to reduce itching, and in severe cases prescribe pills to control inflammation and immune responses to external factors which trigger your eczema symptoms (Mayo Clinic, 2018).
