About Eczema

Eczema (or dermatitis) is a very common skin problem, affecting 1 in 5 children and 1 in 12 adults in the UK. The condition causes inflammation and irritation, typically leading to dry, red and itchy skin.

There are many different types of eczema, the most common of which is atopic eczema (otherwise known as atopic dermatitis). While research has indicated that the condition is genetically determined, it is often environmental triggers that cause flare-ups.
