What is eczema?

Eczema is a general word for dermatitis, which looks at inflammation of the skin. It goes through flare-ups through periods of stress, fatigue and emotional upheaval, but can also be triggered by cold, dry weather[1].

Atopic dermatitis is often labelled as eczema, but is considered a longer-term and severe form it, which stays on the skin rather than flaring-up.

For any eczema-related concerns, you should always visit your doctor.
