Eczema (also known as dermatitis) is a skin disorder that causes inflammation and itching, as well as dryness and cracking. There are various forms of eczema and the most common type is ‘atopic eczema’, which occurs on your neck, hands, elbows and knees. You get eczema in patches with atopic eczema. There is no cure for the condition, but our clinicians can help treat a flare-up and treat infected eczema. Eczema in skin requires long term management as this is a chronic condition.
