Eczema is a condition in which patches of skin become inflamed, itchy, cracked, and rough. Some types can also cause blisters. Many people use the term eczema when referring to atopic dermatitis, which is the most common type. Certain foods, such as nuts and dairy, can trigger symptoms of eczema. Environmental triggers can include smoke, pollen, soaps, and fragrances. Eczema is not contagious.
Home remedies (moisturising creams) and medical treatment (steroid creams) combined with in-clinic procedures like Dermalux LED Phototherapy, can help manage and prevent flares.
