Thanks for your query.
If you or any member of your family is having history of allergies or asthma
then it strongly suggests you might be suffering from eczema. Eczema is a chronic skin condition marked by itching, inflammation, redness
, and swelling of the skin. It occurs in many varieties like atopic eczema
, allergic contact eczema
, dyshidrotic eczema
, and seborrheic eczema. Uncomplicated eczema is generally not a serious condition, but itching and scratching can lead to increased inflammation, open breaks in the skin, and a secondary bacterial infections.
A diagnosis of eczema can often be made by taking a thorough health history, including symptoms, and performing a physical exam.
