Eczema skin problem
Eczema is a common skin condition that occurs when the skin’s protective barrier is weaker than it should be.
Without a strong barrier, it’s easier for moisture to escape the skin and for bacteria and viruses to make their way in. That can lead to dry patches that are red and itchy, especially on the face, hands, feet, inside the elbows, and behind the knees.
The causes of eczema aren’t fully understood, but it’s thought that people with eczema have overactive immune systems that cause their skin to become inflamed, irritated, and uncomfortable.
