What Is Eczema?

Eczema is a catch-all term used to describe conditions where your skin is overly irritated or inflamed or develops into a rash. Eczema can occur anywhere on your body and occurs in people of all ages. Eczema usually occurs sporadically instead of persisting as a chronic condition.

The cause of eczema isn’t known, but heredity plays a role. Additionally, if you have allergies or asthma, you’re more likely to develop eczema on your skin. Certain substances – harsh cleaners, detergents, and animal dander – can also cause your eczema to flare.

How Is Eczema Treated?

While eczema cannot be cured, outbreaks can be controlled. The mainstay of therapy is a good skin care regimen. Dr. Darst and his staff will help design a program specifically for you. Dr. Darst may also recommend a cream or lotion to combat the itching and inflammation. If you think exposure to a specific product causes eczema, you should take steps to avoid it.
