Eczema, also referred as dermatitis or atopic dermatitis, is a disease which results in inflammation of the skin. Eczema is characterized by rash, red skin, and itchiness. The area of the skin involved may vary from small to the entire body. Few combination of factors such as genetical factor, abnormal function of immune system, environmental factor, defects in skin barrier, and activities may cause the skin to be extremely sensitive. The types of dermatitis are determined by location of rash, severity, and the patient’s history. This skin condition is most common in children and affects adult population as well. The symptoms of eczema vary from person to person. Dry itchy red skin, skin rashes, bumpy rashes, and blisters are the most common symptoms of the skin disease. The eczema treatment primarily includes steroid creams and moisturizers. In some cases, antibiotics are required if there was skin infection. Diagnosis of eczema is mostly based on physical examination; in few cases, skin biopsy is performed. The eczema treatment aims to control symptoms by reducing inflammation and relieving itching. The treatment includes calcineurin inhibitors, systemic immunomodulators such as cyclosporine, and other options include antihistamines and vitamin derivatives. Recent improvements in the eczema treatment have increased the quality of life of many patients but still large affected population of about 66.3 million patients are left untapped.
