What is eczema (or dermatitis)?

Eczema is a skin disorder characterised by a local inflammatory response, generally associated with allergic responses. There are many forms and causes for eczema. It can range from a simple short-term local irritation to frequent and painful skin eruptions which are sometimes incapacitating. There are many different types of eczema: atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema (pompholyx), acute vesiculobullous hand eczema…

What are the symptoms of eczema (or dermatitis)?

Eczema is characterised by more or less thick red patches on the skin, thin vesicles, scales, itching (pruritus) and dry skin. These lesions can also lead to the creation of cracks. This disease generally evolves by flare-ups, interrupted by phases of inactivity.

What treatments exist for eczema (or dermatitis)?

There is no existing treatment to cure eczema, only treatments for its symptoms.

These treatments can be:

  • local (antiseptic, topical corticosteroids, silver nitrate, hydrating products)
  • systemic (antihistamines, corticosteroids, ciclosporin and possibly antibiotics in case of secondary infections; retinoids and immunosuppressive drugs can also be prescribed for chronic hand eczema).

Medicinal treatments often have side effects which limit their use. Other approaches exist, like water cures or PUVA or PUVB phototherapies.
