Eczema in a nutshell...
The name comes from the Greek work ‘Eczein’ meaning ‘to boil’.
A rash, often ‘weepy’, sometimes rough, red and itchy. It tends to look as though something is ‘boiling’ out of the skin, hence the name
As skin rashes are so similar, the terms ‘Eczema’ and ‘Dermatitis’ are often confusingly used interchangeably, yet it is the cause of the rash that ultimately distinguishes them – Eczema is often referred to as being hereditary, with external factors causing it to flare or worsen. Dermatitis, on the other hand, is usually caused by factors outside of the body such as contact with an allergen (for example a chemical or even contact with Euro coinage)
Normally found on the on the flexures (inside) of limbs as opposed to Psoriasis, were the lesions will often manifest on the ‘outside’
