WHAT IS ECZEMA

Eczema is not one specific thing, but many. In fact, eczema is actually an umbrella term for seven different skin conditions. (2)
The most common skin condition to be identified as eczema is atopic dermatitis, which also refers to other conditions like asthma and hay fever. (3)
Eczema is common in both adults, children, and babies, and doesn't care if you've had it in the past. (4)
Fun Fact: Although it can sometimes resemble a rash, eczema is NOT contagious! (5)
Eczema can appear on your scalp, face, hands, arms, legs, back, chest, and just about anywhere on your body, making it that much harder to get rid of. (6)
And although you've had eczema on one spot of your body in the past, that doesn't mean it will stay there. Eczema can appear in different places on your body at different times, and can even move without warning. (7)
Although eczema looks and feels different for everyone, most people describe it as a rash that is usually dry, bumpy, and itchy. (8)
Eczema can also leave your skin with a leathery look, and can cause inflammation under your skin, which can lead to swelling and redness around the inflamed area. Scratching thickens the skin further, which is called lichenification. (9)
Fun Fact: Even though it can be hard, DON’T SCRATCH eczema. This can lead to what doctors call the itch-scratch cycle, which can lead to infection and your eczema getting worse. (10)
Some symptoms of eczema go away quickly, while others may linger, causing the condition to take on a seasonal issue (as in allergies) for some. (11)
You can also experience random bursts of eczema, which can significantly impact your life, and can cause infections and other even worse skin conditions. (12)
As with all things, it's best to talk to your doctor if you have any questions about your health, or if your eczema gets worse.
WHAT CAUSES ECZEMA
Doctors and scientists have been studying eczema for years, and still aren’t sure what actually causes the condition.
Some think eczema can be caused by our genes, or possibly environmental factors or pollutants that can harm your skin. (13)
FUN FACT: Doctors believe stress can trigger ezcema, so SPRAY ON THAT LAVENDER and GET SOME SLEEP! (14)
In fact, our skin may simply be reacting as it would an allergic reaction to various stimuli. This means eczema can also be closely tied to other skin inflammation you may suffer from. (10)
Eczema can also be caused when your body loses the ability to distinguish proteins from bacteria and viruses in the body. This abnormal response can lead to eczema. (15)
Unfortunately, if you had eczema when you were younger, it may return as your skin dries when you age, or during times of stress. (16)
