Eczema ResourcesMidwest Allergy Sinus Asthma, SC
Eczema is the name for a group of common, noninfectious conditions that typically cause the skin to become red, itchy, and inflamed. While the exact cause of eczema is unknown, more than thirty million Americans have some kind of this condition.
There are multiple types of eczema that exist, such as:
– Atopic dermatitis
– Contact dermatitis
– Dyshidrotic eczema
– Nummular eczema
– Seborrheic dermatitis
– Stasis dermatitis
It is possible to have more than one type of eczema at once, although all types can cause itching and redness, but some may also cause blistering, “weeping,” and/or peeling of the skin.
If you suspect you have a form of eczema, consult your doctor or contact us at (309) 452-0995 or (217) 717-4404 to book an appointment at one of our clinics today.
