Atopic dermatitis, otherwise known as Eczema, affects your skin’s ability to retain moisture. People who suffer with this condition often have dry, itchy, or easily irritated skin. While the cause is unknown certain allergens, stress, and even weather changes can make atopic dermatitis worse. Scratching often causes the skin to become irritated and inflamed. Sometimes infections occur, tiny blisters may appear, and over time the recurring rash leads to tough and thickened skin. Treatments options vary depending on the severity of the condition. In mild cases, eczema can be treated at home with moisturizers. In more severe cases, treatment options may include ultraviolet light, phototherapy, or corticosteroids.
