The Need for Eczema Research
Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a chronic skin condition characterized by flaky skin lesions and intense itching. Eczema is one of the most common skin conditions, and the disease typically involves flexural folds and/or the face, neck, upper arms, back, hands, and/or feet. The cause of eczema is not fully understood. An estimated 10% of adults and up to 20% of children suffer from eczema.
