Individuals with the eczema suffer from dry itchy skin, but in
its severe form the skin can become broken and raw. Eczema is
any part of the skin surface with the exception of protected areas,
such as the diaper region, can be involved. When the disease starts
in infancy, the rash tends to be localized on the face and scalp.

out causing intense itching. If the child would not scratch, the
skin would probably show little or no changes. The scratching
is most severe at night and the skin becomes raw and may begin

Atopic eczema is the commonest form of eczema and is closely linked
with asthma and hayfever. It can affect both children and adults,
usually running in families. One of the most common symptoms of
atopic eczema is its itchiness (or pruritis), which can be almost
unbearable. Other symptoms include overall dryness of the skin,
redness and inflammation. Constant scratching can also cause the
skin to split, leaving it prone to infection. In infected eczema
the skin may crack and weep (wet eczema).
Allergic contact dermatitis
Develops when the bodys immune system reacts against a substance
in contact with the skin. The allergic reaction often develops
over a period of time through repeated contact with the substance.
For example, an allergic reaction may occur to nickel, which is
often found in earrings, belt buckles and jeans buttons. Reactions
can also occur after contact with other substances such as perfumes
and rubber. In order to prevent repeated reactions it is best
to prevent contact with anything that you know causes a rash.
Irritant contact dermatitis
This is a type of eczema caused by frequent contact with everyday
substances, such as detergents and chemicals, which are irritating
to the skin. It most commonly occurs on the hands of adults and
can be prevented by avoiding the irritants and keeping the skin

A common condition affecting babies under one year old, the exact
cause of which is unknown. Also referred to as cradle cap, it
usually starts on the scalp or the nappy area and quickly spreads.
Although this type of eczema looks unpleasant, it is not sore
or itchy and does not cause the baby to feel uncomfortable or
unwell. Normally this type of eczema will clear in just a few
months, though the use of moisturising creams and bath oils can
help to speed this along.
Adult seborrhoeic eczema
Characteristically affects adults between the ages of 20 and 40.
It is usually seen on the scalp as mild dandruff, but can spread
to the face, ears and chest. The skin becomes red, inflamed and
starts to flake. The condition is believed to be caused by a yeast
growth. If the condition becomes infected, treatment with an anti-fungal
cream may be necessary.
Varicose eczema affects the lower legs of those in their middle
to late years, being caused by poor circulation. Commonly the
skin around the ankles is affected, becoming speckled, itchy and
inflamed. Treatment is with emollients and steroid creams. If
left untreated, the skin can break down, resulting in an ulcer.

shaped areas of red skin, normally on the trunk or lower legs.
