Eczema is a widespread and unpleasant condition caused by the skin’s overreaction to common substances such as soap, food and dust. The skin reddens, itches, and becomes dry, scaly or bubbly. Annoyingly, these dry patches of skin may also ooze a watery or sticky fluid. Eczema has the ability to make life miserable for young and old.
How far the rash spreads depends on the person. Some sufferers can be covered head to toe in a painful, weeping rash that requires hospitalisation and wet bandages while others will only have one or two dry spots. Even mild eczema can be highly undesirable. Unsightly rashes on the hands and face are not a great help to one’s social life.
Causes of Eczema
Eczema can be hereditary. If one or both parents had eczema, you are likely to as well. The other risk factor is vaccines. Studies show that those who are vaccinated are more likely to have eczema or a range of other allergies than those who are not.
