Eczema FAQs

What is eczema?

Eczema is a common inflammatory skin condition that presents as symptoms of itchiness, dry skin, scaly patches, rashes, blisters, and skin infections. There are seven different types of eczema: atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, nummular eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, and stasis dermatitis. 

What are the symptoms of eczema?

Symptoms of eczema vary from person to person, and can range from mild to severe:

  • Itchiness
  • Dry, sensitive skin
  • Inflamed, discoloured skin
  • Rough, scaly, leathery skin, often appearing in patches
  • Crusting or oozing
  • Swollen areas
Is eczema contagious?

No, eczema isn’t contagious, even when an active rash is present.

What causes eczema?

The cause of eczema is undetermined; however, it can run in families. Many people with eczema also have other allergic conditions, including hay fever and asthma.

What can trigger eczema?

Common triggers that can make eczema worse include:

  • Dry skin
  • Scratching the affected areas
  • Viral or bacterial infections
  • Emotional stress
  • Chemicals in swimming pools
  • Animals, dander, or house dust mites
  • Allergens that you can breathe in, like pollen
  • Some fabrics, carpets, bedlinens, especially woollen or synthetic
  • Some body products, like soaps, shampoos, moisturisers etc.
  • Cleaning products, like surface cleaners and disinfectants
  • Artificial colours and preservatives
  • Fragrances, perfumes, and candles
  • Exposure to heat, cold, or dry air
How is eczema treated?

Eczema manifests in different ways for different people, so treatment plans should be prescribed by a doctor on a case-by-case basis. Depending on your age and severity of symptoms, your doctor may prescribe a treatment plan including medical grade topical moisturising cream, oral medications, phototherapy, over-the-counter remedies, immunosuppressants, lifestyle modifications, and behavioural therapies.

 

As a general guide, also try to:

 

  • Maintain and protect skin every day with moisturiser (even when you don’t have an active rash)
  • Avoid known triggers and irritants
  • Treat flare ups as soon as they arise
  • Control the itch
  • Prevent and treat infection
Can eczema be cured?

Unfortunately, there’s no cure for eczema, however symptoms of eczema can be managed with a personalised treatment plan.
