Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition that causes patches of skin to become dry, itchy, cracked, and rough.
The symptoms of eczema may vary depending on the severity of the case, but commonly include itching, dry skin, redness, and a scaly rash, especially on the hands, feet, ankles, eyelids, and inside the bend of the elbows and knees.
Severe itching can also lead to loss of sleep, discomfort, thickening of the skin, and in more serious cases, oozing, crusting, and scaling. While there is no cure for eczema, there are effective treatment options to relieve itching and prevent flare ups from occurring. A thorough consultation with Dr. Geeta Yadav, Dermatologist, will determine your best treatment options.
