What causes eczema?By Dr. Mary Lupo
What causes eczema?Eczema is a chronic, relapsing inflammatory skin disease. Eczema often develops as flare-ups which are triggered by a variety of instances, including:
- Extreme temperature changes
- Rough, coarse materials against the skin
- Animal dander
- Changes in stress levels
- Illnesses such as respiratory infections and colds
- Household product exposure including soaps, perfumes, and laundry detergents
How is eczema detected?Eczema is best characterized as a rash on the skin. It is often itchy and can affect many areas of the body including the face, arms, legs, hands, and feet. It can become difficult for some patients to keep under control. While rashes may be an indication of another health issue, eczema is often easily detected and diagnosed with a visit to a Board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Mary Lupo.
