Our skin is the most important part of our body. Skin protects our body, organs, bones and also regulates our body temperature. A healthy integumentary system is essential to our overall wellness. There are many skin disorders that can occur and eczema is a common form. Eczema is not a disease; it is just a skin disorder. There are different forms of eczema and atopic is the most common form found in most patients. Doctors are not able to track the exact cause of eczema but know it has to do with the immune system itself.
Eczema is not contagious like a cold or fever, however, it is very common that family members suffer from this condition. Eczema is a very common skin disorder and 1 in 10 people in this world have reported this condition. One strange, yet true fact, is that people that suffer from eczema also suffer from asthma, allergies and fever. Some allergies can even worsen the case.
Signs of eczemas are patches on the skin (mainly on the face, neck and upper chest), itchiness and skin that turns red when scratched. There are many ways doctors can help in curing this disorder. There are many treatment options available to cure this disorder completely. Eczema is often confused with other skin irritations, but the right doctor can diagnose and treat the issue properly and help a patient rid themselves of it permanently.
The skin is a very important and sensitive organ, it requires extra care and a healthy lifestyle to help stave off these disorders and diseases.
