Hi, I’m Natasha with LovelySkin.com. As many as 31.6 million Americans may be dealing with a common skin concern called atopic dermatitis, or eczema. This condition makes skin red, itchy and inflamed and can be found in babies, children and adults.
Eczema often affects those who suffer from hay fever or asthma. While symptoms may differ for each person, eczema can usually be identified by dry, sensitive, red skin.
Babies typically experience it around the ears, cheeks, arms and legs. Adults and children tend to have symptoms on the neck, wrists, ankles and the inner elbow and knee.
It’s common for eczema to go away as a child ages and come back periodically when triggered by things like allergens, irritants, weather and bacteria. The best way to prevent eczema flare-ups is by moisturizing every day, wearing soft fabrics, using mild soaps and knowing your triggers and how to avoid them.
Topical creams with steroids like hydrocortisone are the most common way to help calm irritation and itching. There are also steroid-free options for younger patients.
If you suffer from this condition, visit LovelySkin.com/Eczema to find treatment options. If you need help choosing a product, call, email or live chat our Customer Care Team.
