What is Eczema?
Eczema is a very common skin condition that is characterized by the appearance of dry, itchy, and inflamed patches of skin. While eczema is most often associated with infants and small children, it can also carry over to adulthood and affect patients throughout their lifetime. Many of our patients seek treatment for their eczema after finding that over-the-counter creams and therapies don’t quite give them the relief they desire. If you have chronic eczema or atopic dermatitis, we encourage you to come in and see Dr. Siddiqui today.
What Causes Eczema?
Eczema is a common and complex autoimmune condition. Eczema most often appears as flare-ups which can be triggered by an overactive immune response to irritants of the skin. The immune response causes an attack on both healthy and unhealthy proteins, creating inflammation and a variety of unwanted symptoms. Patients may find their eczema flare-ups are caused by:
- Synthetic or thick fabrics
- Heat and raised body temperature
- Excess sweating
- Animal dander
How Do I Know if I Have Eczema?
Eczema is known for causing itchy, dry, red patches of skin that flare up and subside over time. Eczema most commonly affects the arms, inner elbows, backs of the knees, cheeks, and scalp. While redness and itching are common symptoms, more severe cases of eczema may cause:
- Thickened, scaly patches of skin
- Small bumps that ooze when scratched
- Red or brown patches of skin
- Crusty, yellow patches of skin
