Eczema is non-contagious inflammation of the skin (Latin: dermatitis) with dry and itchy skin. Possible triggers of eczema include oily skin, infections with yeast fungi or staphylococci, a disorder of the immune system as well as psychological stress and hereditary predisposition. The most common form of eczema is atopic eczema. Atopic eczema is the result of a lack of oil in the skin, which normally prevents the skin from being dry and fragile. Symptoms of eczema can include redness, cracks, flaking, blistering, swelling.
Skin rashes are often related to allergies in children. Chinese medicine usually interprets this pattern as Damp-Heat or Wind-Heat Condition, causing the following symptoms: red itchy skin, weeping after scratching, allergic skin conditions, eczema, urticaria, dermatitis.
