Eczema
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     It was winter. Jessica's skin was red, sore, and itchy. It must be eczema.
 
2     The baby's skin was itchy, red, and dry. Jake had small bumps on his cheeks. It must be eczema.
 
3     Sally had been working out. She got hot and sweaty. Now her skin was red and itchy. It must be eczema.
 
4     Most cases of eczema are atopic dermatitis. Atopic refers to a patient being allergy prone. Dermatitis refers to red, sore, inflamed skin. Eczema is a chronic condition. It comes; it goes away, and it comes back again. About one in ten kids will experience it. Most of them have their first flare-up by age five. Many outgrow it by the time they are teenagers.
