The skin acts as a barrier that protects the body against environmental elements and helps maintain the fluid and temperature balance of the body. However, with eczema, this barrier function is lost, and the skin breaks into rashes, that results in inflammation, itching, oozing, and crusting.
The exact cause of eczema is unknown. However, experts have looked into the possible causes of eczema, which include:
- a genetic variation
- an immune system dysfunction
- having dry skin
- bacteria on the skin
- environmental factors
Eczema or atopic dermatitis is more common among babies and young children, who often outgrow the condition after age five. However, some people develop it later, or experience flare ups during adulthood.
It has also been observed that certain factors increase one’s risk of developing eczema, including:
- a family history of eczema, skin allergies, asthma or hay fever
- residing in urban areas
- children who attend child care
- ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder)
There is no known eczema cure, but experts recommend certain remedies to relieve symptoms such as itching and dry skin. Eczema remedies include the use of anti-itch creams, lotions or oil, taking anti-itch medications, using moisturizing lotions to relieve dry skin, avoiding triggers such as harsh soaps and perfumes, and managing stress. Scratching must also be avoided to prevent bacterial infection on the skin. One way to avoid scratching is to cover the affected area with wet dressings and bandages to help protect the skin.
