Causes of Eczema and Eczema Symptoms

Though the exact cause of eczema is not known, it is believed that abnormal function of the immune system is responsible. Eczema triggers are:
1. Chemicals in soaps, detergents, clothes, sweat or jewelery
2. Enviromental allergens like pollen can also cause eczema
3. Change in humidity, temperature and stress are major causes of eczema too.

Eczema symptoms
Symptoms of eczema include dry, reddened skin that itches severely. Intense itching is usually the first symptoms of eczema; this can later lead to oozing lesions and blisters. Eczema results in dry, scaly skin and repeated scratching can cause crusty, thick skin.

In adults and children, eczema usually occurs on the face, back of the neck, arms, insides of the elbows, ankles and knees. In children, eczema occurs on the face, scalp, legs and forearms. Eczema becomes chronic dermatitis if the effects last for a longer period of time
