Childhood is often when Atopic dermatitis (eczema), a persistent skin disease, is first noticeable. Eczema can manifest in a diverse array of symptoms, which can range from mild to severe.

It can cause varying levels of physical discomfort and psychological distress for those affected.

Fortunately, numerous efficacious treatment modalities may alleviate symptoms and curtail the frequency of eczema flare-ups, empowering patients to lead fulfilling lives.

Symptoms of Eczema

Atopic dermatitis can manifest in varying symptoms among individuals. The indications may vary from one person to another and may incorporate the following:

  • Having dry skin
  • Mild to severe itching, which is more intense at night
  • Skin patches with red or brown-gray coloring, especially on extremities (arms and legs), the upper chest, the face, and the scalp.
  • Scratching small, raised bumps may cause them to leak fluid and crust over.
  • An increase in the thickness, cracking, and scaliness of the skin
  • Skin that has become raw, sensitive, and swollen due to excessive scratching.

Atopic dermatitis typically begins before age five and may endure into adolescence and adulthood. In certain instances, it may manifest intermittently and subsequently alleviate for a variable duration, ranging from a few weeks to several years.

Causes of Eczema

Eczema significantly challenges the skin’s ability to retain moisture and combat harmful bacteria, irritants, and allergens.

Individuals with a family history of eczema and those in contact with particular substances that trigger an immune system response are at a heightened risk.

Individuals may experience a range of allergies triggered by various factors. However, environmental allergens such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, mold, and are often identified as the primary culprits.

It is a genetic condition often worsened by exposure to airborne allergens. At Juniper Allergy, we can figure this out through skin testing.
