Eczema is a broad term that can refer to several different conditions that cause the skin to be inflamed or irritated. Eczema affects about 10% to 20% of infants and roughly 3% of adults and children in the US. Symptoms of eczema often come and go with flare ups and remissions. Some people outgrow eczema conditions while others live with them through their entire lives.
Causes Of Eczema
The causes of eczema are typically a combination of environmental and genetic factors. Understanding your genetic predispositions can help you avoid or manage the environmental factors that cause flare ups. Skin that does not produce an adequate amount of fats and oils or skin dried out due to everyday substances can also case flare ups.
