I have eczema, is that inherited?

Eczema. Multiple genetic as well as environmental factors interact in the pathogenesis of eczema. Increased understanding of genetic predisposition in atopy and eczema has directed interest toward key pathogenic mechanisms including skin barrier dysfunction.
Maybe! If you are truly diagnosed with "atopic" dermatitis-often generalized as "eczema, " you may have inherited it. People with atopic dermatitis often have allergies of the nose and asthma. Atopic dermatitis is not caused by allergies. The condition gets worse when you are exposed to certain triggers.
