Eczema is a common group of itchy and inflammatory skin diseases. Eczema can have many causes. Therefore, it requires a precise diagnosis to find the appropriate treatment for each patient.
Eczema can occur anywhere on the body. Affected persons identify them by reddened skin, which later begins to itch or burn. Sometimes the skin becomes tense or small blisters form. These eczemas are inflammatory but not infectious skin diseases. Normally there is no danger of infection.
The large group of different types of eczema is the most common skin disease in Europe. This type of indisposition has a typical course, beginning with reddening of the skin, which can develop into weeping and crusting.
Most, but not all eczema can be treated well, although not always curable. In order to initiate the right therapy, eczema requires a careful examination, because of its many possible triggers. Untreated, eczema can become chronic, so a timely clarification is recommended if, for example, an existing redness of the skin does not disappear.
