What is Eczema?
Eczema (also known as dermatitis) is non-contagious skin condition in which patches of skin become inflamed, itchy, cracked and rough that can affect people from early infancy to old age. Some types can also cause blisters.
The symptoms can look and feel different for everyone. If you are feeling uncomfortable because of the symptoms mentioned above, it is best to consult your doctor.
There are seven types of eczema: atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, nummular eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, and stasis dermatitis. However, atopic dermatitis is the most common form of eczema which affects 1 in 5 children and 1 in 10 adults in the UK.
The skin is often unbearably itchy – the urge to scratch can be irresistible – and during a flare-up it can also be red, cracked, sore and raw. Alongside the painful physical symptoms, many children and adults experience related sleeplessness, anxiety, depression and other mental health problems.
And when you see flakes or red rashes, your eczema may scrape away your confidence leading to anxiety. Getting that safe and sound sleep hit different now because you’ve experienced flare ups that keep you up all night or until break of day. Your stress multiplies your discomfort – it will trigger eczema making you feel more stressed.
