Eczema & Psoriasis
Eczema is a common condition that mainly affects children but can continue into adulthood. Atopic eczema or atopic dermatitis as it is also known, is the most common form of eczema. It tends to occur in areas where there are folds of skin such as behind the knees, on the front of the elbows, the side of the neck and around the eyes and ears. Other types of eczema include allergic contact dermatitis and irritant contact dermatitis.
Eczema sufferers are often found to have allergies and frequently are found to have asthma and/or hay fever as well.
