Eczema can be acute, sub-acute or chronic and a variety of treatments exist which can help effectively manage the condition.
There are a number of types of eczema. Atopic dermatits is most common in children but can affect adults of all ages. Whilst many children grow out of eczemathey may have a tendency to dry, sensitive skin in adulthood. Other types of eczema include allergic contact dermatitis and irritant contact dermatitis.
