What is eczema?
- 01. ECZEMA IS CONTAGIOUS
- 02. THERE IS ONLY ONE TYPE OF ECZEMA
- 03. ECZEMA IS THE SAME AS PSORIASIS
Eczema describes multiple types of inflammatory skin condition. None are contagious, but one type is hereditary. Eczema is a skin condition that can affect small patches of your skin or your entire body and manifests in rough, irritated, red skin that itches and sometimes bleed. Though the symptoms are similar, don't confuse it with psoriasis! For more information on eczema, watch our DERMCLASS videos on how to treat eczema and what causes eczema to flare up.
