Eczema

Atopic dermatitis is more commonly known as eczema, a chronic skin condition, usually first appearing in toddlers. Eczema is characterized by flaring up of the skin (inflammation and itchiness) that is self limiting and eventually fades away. It can be caused by allergies or a possible immune system problem. Inflammation usually occurs on the hands and feet, inside of the elbow, back of the knees, ankles, and neck and upper chest. In children, they are often found on the face and neck.
