Disease description:

Eczema is non-contagious inflammation of the skin (Latin: dermatitis) with dry and itchy skin. Possible triggers of eczema include oily skin, infections with yeast fungi or staphylococci, a disorder of the immune system as well as psychological stress and hereditary predisposition. The most common form of eczema is atopic eczema. Atopic eczema is the result of a lack of oil in the skin, which normally prevents the skin from being dry and fragile. Symptoms of eczema can include redness, cracks, flaking, blistering, swelling.

Explanation according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine:

Acute and subacute eczema and dermatitis are mostly caused by external Wind, Damp, or Heat invading the skin, and chronic ones are mostly caused by Blood Deficiency and Dryness, or Spleen Deficiency and Dampness.
