Eczema is a medical term for a variety of skin conditions that cause an unpleasant and consistent rash. In many cases, eczema will develop due to contact with an allergen. After exposure to an allergen, the skin will develop a red, itchy rash, which gets worse if you scratch it, oozing and then crusting over. This condition is common in children but affects adults as well. People can be allergic to a wide range of substances, including dust mites, pollen, dander, and foods. If you are suffering from allergic eczema, our team at Madison Skin & Laser Center can help you achieve relief.
Allergens and your body: How eczema flare-ups can be triggered
If you contact an allergen, it can enter your body through small skin cracks or cuts, particularly if your skin is dry. The body recognizes the allergen as an enemy and gets to work trying to fight it off. The body then produces certain chemicals, which are sent to the affected area. These natural chemicals cause the skin to become inflamed, with redness and swelling appearing.
