Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)

Eczema is a chronic disease that causes long term inflammation of the skin which begins in the first six months of life.

Even though eczema is not contagious, severe cases can cause serious health problems; the barrier function of the skin is less effective and an increase in bacterial infections of the skin can be observed. Eczema also has a physiological impact in every day life; it causes feelings of embarrassment and lack of sleep, due the itching sensation associated with this disease.
