Treatments for eczema

Eczema is a common condition that affects thousands of New Zealanders, most of which notice it’s signs in early childhood.
Characterised by itchy, red patches on the body or face, eczema is an inflammatory skin condition that causes the skin to dry and crack. There are seven distinct types of eczema; atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, discoid or nummular eczema, neurodermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and stasis dermatitis. Each of these varieties of eczema can be caused by different factors and can respond differently to treatment.
Eczema symptoms may vary from person to person, but essentially they all stem from an underlying inflammation response caused by an irritant or allergen. The first step is to try to identify and remove the allergen. The second, repairing the damage done to your skin.
