What is Eczema?
Eczema is a term used to describe a group of inflamed skin conditions that result in chronic, relapsing and very itchy rashes. There is no known cause for the condition, but it appears to involve an overactive immune system in the presence of certain materials and often occurs in people susceptible to allergies.
