Everything you Need to Know About Atopic Eczema

Atopic dermatitis, commonly known as eczema, is a condition that makes your skin red and itchy. According to a study by Karger, eczema can affect 1%-3% of adults and 15%-20% of children worldwide. It is a long-term and chronic skin condition that can create hurdles in your daily life. The itching on your skin caused due to atopic dermatitis can get difficult to handle. It can disrupt your concentration while working or also disrupt your sleep cycle. People with visible rashes on the skin may show symptoms of stress and anxiety. According to a study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, adults suffering from atopic dermatitis can likely suffer from depression and anxiety too.

The severity of the atopic dermatitis skin condition may vary. It is a skin condition that usually affects children with symptoms that can reduce as they grow up. Eczema commonly causes itching that can be mild or severe. The type and location of the rash may vary based on the age of the person. Children may suffer rashes on the face, scalp, hands, and feet. Older children and adults may notice rashes on the knees and elbows. In adults, the rashes are visible on the hands, eyelids, or genitals. In case of a bad outbreak, the rashes may appear anywhere on the body.

Symptoms of Eczema

Some common symptoms of eczema that may be visible on the skin include itching, dry and sensitive skin, inflamed and discolored skin, rough, leathery, or scaly patches, oozing, and crusting blisters, ear discharge or bleeding, and redness and inflammation around the skin. You may notice all these symptoms or just a few. Your symptoms may increase or vanish completely depending on the severity of your exposure to irritants that can flare up the symptoms. Allergens like pollen, mold, dust mites, or animal hair, chemical irritants, material irritants like wool; cold and dry air during winters; exposure to perfumes, extreme temperature fluctuations, and emotional stress, all can trigger eczema symptoms.

You can check the extent and severity of eczema with the help of a professional diagnosis as well. Your doctor will take a close look at your skin to understand the signs of eczema better. They may ask you about the eczema symptoms and run some tests to understand your condition better. The doctor may perform the following tests as an allergy test, a blood test to check the causes of the rash, and a skin biopsy of one type of skin condition to another. Here are some basic questions your healthcare expert may ask you:

  • Where is the eczema rash located?
  • Do you have any other allergies or asthma?
  • Do you have a family history of eczema?
  • How long have you been experiencing the symptoms of eczema?
