Eczema is an inflammatory skin disorder most often characterized by itching, redness, small bumps, and lesions. This condition affects people of all age groups, and is most prevalent amongst young children. Eczema encompasses a wide range of skin conditions. The type can be atopic eczema, contact dermatitis, seborrhoeic dermatitis, discoid eczema, pompholyz eczema, asteatotic eczema, and finally varicose eczema. These are often distinguished by the area of the body affected, as well as the physical look of the eczema rash itself.
