Eczema is a chronic skin condition that involves irritated and itchy patches of skin. It is common in childhood but may not manifest until later years. Many times the skin appears to have a red, itchy rash. Severe cases may result in blisters and cracked skin. Often times, itching begins before the rash appears. Eczema is commonly associated with other conditions, such as asthma and seasonal allergies.
Diligent skin care is important to control eczema. For flares, treatment can include a combination of prescription medicated creams, moisturization, and other treatments.
