Eczema is a common problem that causes the skin to become inflamed. People often also call it dermatitis.Eczema comes in many forms. But the different types of eczema tend to cause these symptoms:
Itching. The itching can be intense. The damage to the skin during eczema is often due to scratching.
Scaling. The surface of the skin can flake off, giving the skin a rough, scaly appearance.
Redness. The affected skin may bleed and appear blotchy.
Fluid-filled blisters . These can ooze and form crusts.
Cracking. Severely affected skin may develop painful, deep cracks, also called fissures.
Depending on the cause, eczema may flare up and cause severe symptoms. But it can also become a chronic problem with less intense symptoms.
