Eczema and Dermatitis are interchangeable terms, a complex, chronic, and recurrent inflammatory itchy skin disorder. It may occur at any age, regardless of infancy or older age group. It is estimated that 1 in 10 individuals will develop eczema in their lifetime.
It is caused by loss of skin moisture and increases its risk of environmental pollutants resulting in skin inflammation and itch. The itch-scratch cycle contributes to chronic and recurrent eczema.
Early prevention by using hypoallergenic skin care products, including body wash and moisturizer, starting from a young age, can reduce the risk of eczema onset.
