ECZEMA - ‘The itch that rashes’Eczema is the term for a group of medical conditions that cause the skin to become inflamed or irritated. The most common type of eczema is known as atopic dermatitis, or atopic eczema. 15% of children have eczema. There is emerging evidence that atopic dermatitis results primarily from the inherited abnormalities in the skin – “the skin barrier defect”. This barrier failure causes increased permeability of the skin and reduces its antimicrobial function and increase it’s reactivity to stimuli such as allergens, toxins and pathogens.
