Eczema can also be caused by something else

Do you have chapped, dry and unusually itchy skin: this can be eczema. Eczema can greatly affect your daily life. This condition usually causes the skin’s surface to become (and stay) irritated. Although many forms of the skin condition can be hereditary, other causes are also possible. We’ve listed them for you.

Do you have eczema but it doesn’t run in the family? Then it may also be due to one of these things.

In addition to these general symptoms, there are also things that may further aggravate the chronic skin condition.
