Eczema is a condition that causes the skin to become red, irritated, and itchy. Atopic eczema is the most common form of this condition. People with atopic eczema often come from families with an inherited predisposition to develop other allergies like asthma and hay fever. Eczema most commonly causes a rash that appears on the face, back of the knees, hands, feet, or wrists.In the U.S. 10% to 20% of infants will develop eczema and 3% of adults will develop it. We don’t know exactly what causes eczema, but one hypothesis is that the body’s immune system overreacts to some irritant. While there’s no cure, the symptoms can be controlled. The challenge is to try and figure out the triggers that cause flare-ups.Conventional treatments for eczema are scary. They include steroids, antibiotics, antihistamines, tar treatments, cyclosporine, and two drugs that alter the immune system response to prevent flare-ups: Elidel and Protopic. These 2 drugs have an FDA warning because of possible cancer risks that result from their use.There are other, safer methods that you can try.
