Red, itchy, and inflamed skin can be both uncomfortable and a sign that you may have a condition called eczema. Derived from a Greek word meaning “boil over,” it isn’t just a singular condition, but a group of seven different ones that all begin with the same symptoms and can be managed most of the time.

Here we have assembled information about how to recognize the signs and symptoms of eczema and its family members: atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, neurodermatitis, nummular eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, and stasis dermatitis. There is also information about how to treat it.
