What is Eczema?  
 
  Eczema is a skin condition, which is common in both children and adults. It often affects people who suffer from asthma and allergies or have family members who do. One in five school-age children in Singapore has eczema and it is more common among the Chinese and Malays compared with the Indians and other races. In more than 50% of patients, the onset of eczema occurred before the age of 10 years.  
 
Causes of Eczema  
 
 
  • Irritating soaps, detergents or chemicals
  • Changes in temperature or humidity
  • Clothing made of wool
  • Certain food
  • Stress

Eczema
Some common signs and symptoms of eczema include:

  • Rash
  • Itch
  • Dry skin
  • Sensitive skin
  • Inflamed skin
 
     
  These symptoms are long-term in nature and they may recur after a period of apparent recovery. It is recommended that you see your skin doctor to discuss the symptoms, which you may have.  
 
Tips for better control of Eczema  
 
 
  • Bathe or shower in lukewarm water
  • After bathing, pad skin dry rather than rub the towel against the skin
  • Keep your skin moisturised (apply your personal choice of moisturiser)
  • Use mild soaps
  • Keep your fingernails short (to prevent injury to skin during scratching)
  • Wear loose-fitting, 100% cotton clothings
  • Reduce stress
  • For very young children, it may be useful to war mittens during sleep (this will prevent skin injuries due to unconscious scratching)
