Eczema can be described as a non-contagious condition of skin, characterized by itchy dry hot skin, with symptoms that often fluctuate seasonally and even during the day. Frequently Dr. Peter M. Wayne has said that publicly. Eczema usually begins in early childhood. Research indicates that eczema may be genetically determined and studies show that there is often a family history of allergies, asthma, eczema or hay fever. Children who experience eczema may also suffer from asthma or hay fever as well. Like an allergy, eczema tends to style, even when exposed to certain triggers, especially mechanical irritants, allergens, emotional stress, heat and sweating. When exposed to an offending situation, inflammation producing cells come to the surface of the skin and release chemicals, leaving your skin red, pealing and thickened. Sometimes small blisters form, break, mourn and crust.
Eczema appears most often in and around creases of the joints of the arms and legs and around the trunk. For some, it is also in your hands and on the sloes of their feet. Patients also experience an intense itching makes them want to scratch, causing additional damage that can lead to bleeding and infection. Solvents, chemicals, detergents, bleach, woolen clothing, products for skin care that contain alcohol and certain soaps or perfumes are considered mechanical irritant that can cause burning, itching or redness of the skin and make-up style. And while the allergens such as foods, pollens and pets, does not irritate the skin, can also trigger a touch-up. The same goes for true emotional stress. Feelings like anger and frustration can touch up symptoms.
