Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)


Atopic dermatitis, commonly known as eczema, is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by red, itchy, and inflamed patches of skin. It is often associated with other allergic conditions like asthma and hay fever. Atopic dermatitis is more prevalent in children but can persist into adulthood. The exact cause is not fully understood, but a combination of genetic, environmental, and immune system factors is believed to contribute to its development. The symptoms of atopic dermatitis include dry and sensitive skin, intense itching, red or brownish patches, and in severe cases, blisters or oozing lesions. The condition can be triggered or exacerbated by factors such as certain foods, allergens, stress, or irritants like harsh soaps. While atopic dermatitis is a chronic condition without a cure, proper management and avoidance of triggers can significantly improve symptoms and enhance the quality of life for those affected.
