Eczema is a group of persistent skin conditions where the skin is chronically inflamed. Eczema is characterized by dry skin, with patches that are red and intensely itchy. These patches of eczema may ooze, become scaly, crusted, or hardened. The rash most commonly appears on the face, back of the knees, wrists, hands, or feet. The most common type of eczema is called atopic dermatitis. Part of eczema management is bathing and moisturizing to repair the skin barrier. Well.ca carries numerous eczema creams and washes that help to treat eczema in adults and baby eczema.
