There are Several Types of Eczema:
The most common ones include the following:
- Atopic Dermatitis:
~ It usually begins in infancy and varies in severity during childhood and adolescence.
~ It is thought to be caused by a combination of dry, irritable skin and a malfunction in the body's immune system
- Contact Dermatitis:
~ Some people with dermatitis are sensitive to sunlight. Whatever the irritant, if the skin remains in constant contact with it, the dermatitis is likely to spread and become more severe
~ Stress, especially chronic tension, can cause or exacerbate dermatitis
- Seborrheic Dermatitis:
~ With adults ~ this can be triggered by stress or other health conditions such a Parkinson's disease
- Stasis Dermatitis:
~ this fluid buildup interferes with your blood's ability to nourish your skin and places pressure against the skin
- Dermatitis Herpetiformis:
~ may be triggered by the consumption of dairy and/or gluten
