Frequently Asked Questions

What is eczema?

Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a skin condition characterized by red, itchy patches on the skin. Eczema is a chronic (long-lasting) condition, but can flare-up periodically. While it is most common in children, eczema affects around 10% of adults worldwide. There is no cure for eczema.

What is eczema caused by?

Biologically, eczema is caused by an overactive immune system which causes inflammation that damages the skin barrier. Despite its roots in biology, eczema is highly influenced by environmental factors, such as weather, diet, and stress. When exposed to certain environmental factors, patients with eczema may experience flare-ups.
