Eczema is a chronic skin disorder that appears as a dry skin rash, often with red and scaly symptoms. An estimated one in every nine people in the UK have been diagnosed with eczema at some point in their lives.

The term eczema is broadly applied to a range of persistent skin conditions that cause a wide variety of symptoms — redness, skin edema (swelling), itching and dryness, crusting, flaking, blistering, cracking, oozing or bleeding. Temporary skin discolouration and scarring may also occur as a result of scratching uncomfortable rashes caused by eczema.

There are a variety of different treatments available that can be applied as standalone treatments or in combination with each other. These range from emollients for use in the bath or shower, medicinal moisturisers to relieve acute itchiness and weak topical steroids or immunosuppressants for stronger cases. These steroids are applied externally to the skin and reduce inflammation and itching without causing skin thinning, enabling the skin to heal more effectively.

Successful treatment typically results in full elimination of eczema symptoms and can therefore provide relief from existing discomfort and irritation.
