Eczema – also referred to as dermatitis – is a general term used to describe a wide variety of skin conditions that cause itching, rashes, scaly patches, dry leathery skin, redness, lesions, oozing pus, inflammation, pain and/or blisters. Eczema can be located anywhere on the body, but is more commonly found in creases on the face, arms and legs.
Eczema (“dermatitis”) is believed to be hereditary and affects both men and women of all ages and races.
