Eczema is a skin condition caused by inflammation of the skin. It causes skin to become red, dry and itchy even cracked and leathery. It can appear anywhere on the body. It is most common in infants; many of them outgrow it before adulthood. People with eczema are in high risk of developing asthma or hay fever. Atopic dermatitis is the most common of the many types of eczema.
Patches of chronically itchy, dry, thickened skin usually on the hands, legs, neck and face but, it can occur anywhere on the body. In children it occurs mostly in the inner creases of knees and elbows.
If scratched dry patches of skin with open sores may develop and may be infected.
Good skin care is the key. Along with a change in your daily habits that is all you need to take care of mild eczema. In case of severity, then you need medication such as hydrocortisone, antihistamines, corticosteroids and drugs that strengthen the immune system.

After getting fed up with all kinds of creams and lotions that doctors gave me for my eczema, I consulted Positive Homeopathy. The first consultation was two hours long and they said the treatment would initially work slowly. It is four and half months after I started my treatment, and there is no flare up!
