Eczema is a inflammatory skin condition that causes dry, flaky, itchy skin (rash). Eczema is an inflammation of the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). The most common forms of eczema include Atopic eczema ( a dermatitis-like allergic skin reaction that is believed to be hereditary), Contact dermatitis (allergic skin reaction to an irritant) and Xerotic Eczema (overly dry skin that turns into eczema). Eczema affects about 20% of the world's population and no cure is available.
To control the symptoms of eczema, several skin treatments are available that aim to reduce the inflammation and itching of the skin. Corticosteroids are commonly used to treat eczema, however due to the fact that corticosteroids cause thinning of the skin, long-term use of corticostroids is not recommended.
