Eczema

Description

Eczema is a form of dermatitis or inflammation of the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). The term is broadly applied to a range of persistent skin conditions. Can affect any region of the body, but most often impacts the inside of the forearms, as well as the hands and feet

Appearance

  • Depending on the type of eczema and the individual’s reaction, the disorder manifests itself in a variety of ways,
  • at times appearing red, dry or scaly and at times appearing as a blistering lesion
  • Areas of temporary skin discoloration may appear and are sometimes due to healed injuries
  • Scratching open a healing lesion may result in scarring and may enlarge the rash

Symptoms

  • Eczematic symptoms commonly include itchy, reddened, and dry skin; skin edema (swelling); crusting, flaking,and cracking; blistering, oozing and bleeding
  • Cracking and weeping of the skin may also occur and open sores may become infected
  • Environmental causes of the condition may include exposure to dryness, soaps and detergents, cleaning products, rubber gloves and even cosmetic lotions and creams
  • Itchiness often encourages prolonged scratching which in turn leads to reddened, irritated, scaling skin or even a leathery thickening of the skin

Treatment

  • Recommended treatments are always based upon an individual’s age, overall health status, and the type and severity of the condition
  • Keeping the skin well hydrated through the application of creams or ointments (with a low water and high oil content) as well as avoiding over-bathing is an important step in treatment
  • Corticosteroid creams are sometimes prescribed to decrease the inflammatory reaction in the skin, prescribed according to severity of the symptoms
  • For severe itching, oral antihistamines may be prescribed
  • In order to control an acute outbreak of eczema, oral corticosteroids may be prescribed, although their long-term use is discouraged
  • Ultraviolet light therapy
