Eczema is a skin problem that makes skin areas irritated and inflamed.
About 3% of adult Americans deal with this condition, and 20% of all children in the US have this problem.
Atopic dermatitis is the most common form of eczema, and it is accompanied with itchiness and inflammation. Sufferers say it causes rashes on their face, knees, wrists, hands and the area behind the knees. Sometimes it may affect the entire body.
The itchiness stops usually when the individual scratches the affected area until it starts bleeding.
