ECZEMA & DERMATITIS
ECZEMA AND ATOPIC DERMATITIS
Atopic Dermatitis is often also called eczema and is an itchy patch of skin. It is very common in infants and children. It is unknown what causes it, but it seems to run in families and is not contagious.
Almost everyone will get contact dermatitis at some point in their lives. Contact dermatitis is anytime one develops a rash from touching something. Some examples would be poison ivy, latex, soap, and jewelry.
Dyshidrotic Eczema is a skin condition that causes dry itchy skin with the presence of small blisters typically on the hands and sometimes feet. The blisters usually come up suddenly and will usually go away on their own in a couple of weeks, but flares in the future are possible since there is no cure.
