The Number One Most Common Type Of Eczema
There are certain types of eczema. And the most common type of eczema is known as atopic dermatitis, or atopic eczema. Atopic eczema is a skin condition characterized by chronic inflammation and frequent relapses. There are itchy red rashes over the affected areas that usually involve skin creases such as the folds of the elbows or behind the knees, hands or feet. It often affects people who also have asthma or hay fever.
However, not just in adults, but also for the babies. It particularly affects areas such as their cheeks, chin, forehead or scalp. Not to mention the butt area of the baby. Most especially parents use diapers and that is one of the most sensitive areas for a baby. Dry skin, sweating, pet dander or even dust can cause a flare-up of your child’s eczema. Scratching also can make eczema worse, causing redness, swelling and other symptoms like itching.
