Eczema

Eczema can be either an acute rash or a chronic, persistent inflammation of the skin.

It starts with a rash accompanied by redness, bumps or blisters that itch and burn. As this heals, crusts are formed. If eczema develops into a chronic condition, dry scales may appear and skin thickens, becomes leathery and cracks. The elbow, knee creases, face, hands and sole of the feet are the most vulnerable areas.
