Eczema is an itchy rash. The symptoms can be only itchiness (when mild) but is frequently red and visibly irritated. It is an inflammatory condition of the skin involving approximately one in every five children. Usually the skin has difficulty maintaining moisture and there may be allergic triggers as well. The symptoms when mild include itching but can be part of a spectrum that includes cracking, swelling, redness, bleeding and infection. In addition, there are many types of eczema that Dr. Chahine can diagnose and tailor the appropriate treatment. Although Eczema is genetic and cannot be cured, the symptoms can be cured.
