Understanding Eczema:

Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a prevalent dermatological condition that manifests as inflamed, pruritic (itchy), and erythematous (red) skin lesions. It can significantly affect quality of life due to its chronic and often relapsing nature. While eczema can occur at any age, it predominantly affects infants and young children, with many experiencing symptoms that persist into adulthood.

Symptoms of Eczema:

Xerosis (dry, sensitive skin)
Severe pruritus (itching)
Erythematous and inflamed skin
Lichenification (thick, leathery patches due to chronic scratching)
Exudation (oozing) or crust formation
Edema (swelling) in severe cases
Etiology of Eczema:

The pathogenesis of eczema is multifactorial, involving a complex interplay of genetic predisposition, environmental factors, and immune system dysregulation. Key contributing factors include:

Genetic Factors: Mutations in the filaggrin gene, which is essential for skin barrier function, have been implicated.
Environmental Triggers: Common irritants and allergens such as soaps, detergents, pollen, dust mites, and pet dander can exacerbate symptoms.

Immunological Factors: An overactive immune response leads to inflammation and skin barrier disruption.
Psychological Stress: Stress can worsen eczema symptoms by influencing immune function.

Climatic Conditions: Changes in temperature and humidity can trigger flare-ups.
