Eczema is a general term encompassing various inflamed skin conditions. The term eczema is broadly applied to a range of persistent or recurring skin rashes characterized by redness, skin edema, itching and dryness, with possible crusting, flaking, blistering, cracking, oozing or bleeding. The most common cause of eczema is atopic dermatitis, sometimes called infantile eczema although it occurs in infants and older children. It crops up in many different ways, such as in an elderly person with dry red skin around the ankles, a child with weeping red areas on the wrists, or someone whose eyelids have become itchy, red, dry and puffy in reaction to make-up. The terms “eczema” or “dermatitis” are used to describe certain kinds of inflamed skin conditions including allergic contact dermatitis and nummular dermatitis. It really only means inflammation of the skin, and could be used interchangeably with eczema, as it often is by doctors.
