Eczema is a group of medical conditions that cause the skin to become inflamed or irritated. Eczematous diseases are very common with an estimated prevalence of more than 10% in the general population. According to statistics 15-25% of all dermatological patients suffer from eczema.
The most common type is known as atopic eczema, or atopic dermatitis. Inflamed and itchy skin is characteristic for people who have this problem. They also have rashes in some parts of their body such as the face, wrists, knees, hands, face, and the back of the knees, or in some cases over the entire body.
There are many lotions and creams that are prescribed to relieve itching, but many ointments and OTC drugs result in severe side effects.
