Eczema is a skin condition that causes areas of your skin to become itchy, dry, cracked, sore and red. If you suffer from eczema and would like a consultation to explore your treatment option, you cab book a skin consultation below.
Eczema is sometimes called dermatitis or atopic eczema. Eczema can happen all over your body, but, it’s more common on the hands (especially fingers), the insides of the elbows or backs of the knees.
People with mild eczema may only have small areas of dry skin that are itchy every now and again. In more severe cases, eczema can cause widespread red, inflamed skin all over the body. It also causes constant itching. Scratching can disrupt your sleep, make your skin bleed, and cause secondary infections. It can also make itching worse.
