It is normal that one can experience an itch once in a while, but, when the itch is frequent and causes irritation to the skin, it progresses to eczema.
Eczema, also known as dermatitis, is regarded as a condition where the patient experiences inflammation of the skin, which is characterized by itching, redness and an outbreak of lesions. It is not a contagious disease, which means it does not spread from one person to another.
Eczema isn’t just a painful, chronic problem; for many, it is a major health burden and a big drain on the quality of life.
If the skin is not properly managed and cared for, the disease may flare up, resulting in significant itching and discomfort.
- Eczema is a general term for any form of dermatitis or 'itchy rash'
- Stress and other emotional disorders can worsen eczema
- Eczema can lead to various complications such as skin infections, sleep and behavioural problems, among others.
- Eczema is a long-term disorder that tends to flare up suddenly and then lessen.

More on eczema
Eczema has been regarded as a long-term inflammatory condition of the skin, causing itching, redness and lesions/eruptions on the skin. Commonly, it is known to affect about 20% children and about 1 to 2% adults across the world. It is also known to affect people at any age; however, it is frequently observed in infants. Among infants, eczema generally tends to disappear by the age of three, but it may continue into adulthood for a few patients. This condition affects both sexes.
Even though eczema is not a life-threatening condition, it can have a remarkable impact on a patient’s life. Additionally, a patient may suffer from issues such as discomfort from the condition, altered self-image, anxiety about the nature of the disease, etc., which the physician also needs to focus on while treating the patients.
Phases of the disease may range from symptoms getting worse to getting better by themselves, which implicates an unpredictable course in several patients. However, early diagnosis and treatment can provide relief to patients from the associated, bothersome symptoms.
