What is Atopic eczema?
Atopic eczema, also known as eczema, is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the skin that leads to itching, redness, swelling, and irritation in the skin. It is most common in the creases of the elbows, behind the knees, and on the face and scalp, but it can appear anywhere on the body. Symptoms can range from mild to severe and can include dry, flaky skin, itching, redness, and small, raised bumps.
Atopic Dermatitis (AD), a type of eczema, is a common chronic inflammatory skin condition that affects approximately 1-3% of adults worldwide. AD is characterised by an impaired skin barrier function and sensitisation to environmental allergens. Eczema symptoms include: itchy, red, swollen, dry and broken skin. Corticosteroids are commonly prescribed to manage eczema symptoms but are not a cure. A gentle skincare routine with emollients, bathing in warm rather than hot water, wearing clothing and bedding with comfortable fabrics and avoiding any known environmental or dietary triggers may be used to prevent flare-ups.
