Eczema

Eczema is a chronic, dry skin condition which accounts for up to 90% of occupational skin diseases in the UK. The skin can become red, itchy, cracked and inflamed, and in severe cases it may weep, crust and even bleed.

Eczema irritants may include exposure to household products (cleaning agents, soaps), pet hair, food or pollen allergies, diet and stress. It can also be influenced by genetics and the environment. Each individual case is unique and the symptoms and triggers can dramatically vary from person to person.

Eczema most commonly appears on the hands, backs of knees, inside of elbows, face and scalp, but it can also present over the entire body.

There is no cure for the many different types of eczema but there is a wide range of treatment options available to treat the symptoms and related affects such as scarring and skin discoloration.
