Eczema is a non-contagious skin condition

that causes red and inflamed skin that can itch and bleed if scratched.

What is eczema?

Eczema usually appear on the arms, backs of the knees, hands, feet and face. Itching generally begins before the rash appears and leaves skin looking dry, thickened or scaly. Eczema is quite a common skin type. 6 million people in the U.S. have some form of eczema. 

Dermatologists are not yet sure of the exact causes of eczema; it is believed this skin condition is caused by the immune system’s response to external irritants.

What does eczema look like?

Mild eczema can appear as dry, flaky skin, while more severe eczema symptoms can include extreme redness and irritation along with cracking and oozing.

If you want to know you’re experiencing eczema, see a dermatologist who can properly diagnose the cause of your skin symptoms.

#1 Contact dermatitis

It results when the skin comes in contact with a specific irritant and results in redness, itching and burning. Common causes of contact dermatitis include chemicals, detergents, fumes, cigarette smoke, paints, bleach, wool, skincare products that contain alcohol, soaps, fragrances and allergens such as pollen or animal dander.

Dyshidrotic eczema results in small, itchy blisters that appear on the edges of the fingers, toes, palms and soles of the feet. This can be accompanied by flaking, cracking and pain as well. Stress and allergies are common triggers, and this type of eczema is twice as common in women than men.
