Dermatitis / Eczema

Dermatitis / Eczema simply means skin inflammation but is used to describe a wide range of skin conditions. The most common type of atopic dermatitis is commonly called eczema. The early stages of dermatitis and eczema are often red, dry, and itchy patches of skin. More advanced dermatitis may result in crusty scales, sensitive cracks, or blisters on the skin. The rash can often be preceded by itching and most often appears on the face, back of the knees, hands or feet but it can appear anywhere on the body.
