Skin Lesson

Monday, August 09, 2010

If you experience dryness and recurring skin rashes, you just might be suffering from eczema. It is a chronic skin condition as opposed to a regular dermatitis which is considered acute although a lot of people interchange the two terms which are also often classified together. It may have resulted from allergic reactions that are genetic in nature or the skin is simply too sensitive and gets irritated so easily. It cannot be totally treated but recurrence may be avoided by moisturizing the skin and avoiding known allergens. Lastly, it is not contagious.
