What is Eczema?
Eczema is actually an umbrella term used to describe a group of inflammatory conditions that impact the skin. This impacts individuals in the form of itchiness, redness, and dryness. (1)
This irritation can be severe and it commonly affects areas such as the hands, feet, face, and joint regions like the elbows and knees. (1)
For individuals with this condition, in places that move frequently such as the knees and hands, this can be painful.
It can affect any part of the body. (2)
What Causes Eczema?
While scientists are still trying to understand the complex nature of what causes eczema, a definite answer has not been found. It is believed though that a combination of environmental pathogens and genetic factors are to blame. (2)
Many things can trigger eczema in individuals suffering from this condition. Those things include severe weather environments. Such as being very hot, very cold, or humid. Conditions such as stress can amplify the effects of eczema on the skin. (3)
Irritants such as cigarette smoke, cleaning products, and soaps (4)
Allergens, such as pet dander, pollen, and dust can also amplify this condition (1)
