Eczema is usually a very persistent, itchy skin condition consisting of skin dryness and inflammation manifested by redness of the skin, crusting and thickening of the skin. Eczema is an inflammation of the skin and may be associated with an allergic reaction, although the cause is not always known.
In adults, eczema is commonly found on the inner elbow or behind the knee. If you also have acne, this will treat acne too and is better than most chemical acne products. Once skin is exposed to a trigger, it releases chemicals to the surface of the skin, which causes a patient to itch.
To get control of your skin condition it does take time and energy to follow a successful skin care routine. Serious types of eczema include nummular, discoid and dyshidrotic. We know that when someone is experiencing stress they are more likely to feel itchy and then start scratching the skin.
