Eczema: An Overview
Eczema is an inflammation of the skin, or dermatitis, caused by internal factors. General dermatitis refers to inflammation caused by both external and internal factors.
Eczema symptoms include redness, flaking and blistering in addition to the inflammation. There are many different types of eczema and dermatitis, however, one of the biggest obstacles to get beautiful skin is seborrheic dermatitis. In adults, this condition can cause the creases from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth to become red, flaky, and itchy. It can also affect other skin creases around the body, such as the groin, armpits, and under the breasts. Seborrheic dermatitis tends to run in families and usually comes and goes over several years.
Risks from Eczema
Eczema is not generally dangerous to your health, but it can be a nuisance and disconcerting. If blisters develop and burst or if you scratch blisters, they may become infected.
Treatments for eczema include eczema cream that you can apply as part of your daily skin care. Both prescription and over-the-counter eczema cream and corticosteroid face creams are available. Corticosteroid drugs prevent and reduce inflammation, but may have some side effects that you need to be aware of. They can cause a temporary steroid rash, they can worsen pre-existing skin infections, if it is used for too long, it can permanently thin out skin or cause stretch marks to appear, and, finally, they can diminish the function of the adrenal glands. Generally, eczema can be improved with serious daily skin care and potentially a visit to the dermatologist.
