Eczema: Causes, Triggers and TreatmentEczema is derived from a Greek word, which means to effervesce or to bubble or to boil

over. Eczema is called medically as atopic dermatitis and is an itchy and red rash, which appears

on any part of the body or the entire body (Eczema, n.d.). Eczema can occur in children and

adults and even in small babies. Eczema is usually diagnosed at a very young age and very rarely

it can begin in adulthood. The eczema rash can appear different and it can also affect different

parts of body time to time, for example one time it can appear on the knee, the other on the neck

or wrists or ankles or sometimes even all over the body. It differs in severity and can be mild,

moderate or severe. One of tough situations associated with eczema is the itch-scratch cycle,

which makes the rash even worse.

Causes and Trigger Factors

People of any age can get eczema, but it is usually diagnosed when the eczema patients

are young or just babies. It continues into adulthood, but sometimes the severity reduces as

children become adults.  The causes of eczema can be allergic or genetic, but still the exact

causes are not known yet.  Eczema is triggered due to many factors. Some of the common

1. Irritants:  such as bubble bath, disinfectants, soaps and detergents and juices of

meats, vegetables, or fruits.

2. Allergens: such as house dust mites, molds, dandruff, pets, and pollens

3. Microbes: such as bacteria, viruses and certain fungi.

4. Foods: such as eggs, nuts and seeds, dairy products, wheat and soy products.

5. Stress and hormones (Causes & Triggers, n.d.).

People Affected by Eczema in the US and the World

The national prevalence calculated using the 2003 National Survey of Children’s Health

of a sample of 102, 353 children of 17 years and above shows that the prevalence ranged from

8.7 percent to 18.1 percent between states and districts and the highest prevalence was found in

the East Coast States, as well as Idaho, Utah and Nevada (Shaw, Currie, Koudelka, & Simpson,

2011). Atopic eczema is the commonest dermatoses with a prevalence of 2-5 percent in children

and around 10 percent among young adults (Ring & Darsow, 2015).

(Bahaj, Moharem & Kaid, 2012).
