In brief: Eczema

Eczema is an allergy, caused by allergic chemicals that we breathe or eat, and is a skin form of asthma and sinusitis.
It runs in families, and may begin in child hood. It causes terrible itching which causes the person to scratch and hurt their own skin. It is very hard to discover what you are allergic to, so you must use lotions to soften the skin and anti itch pills to stop you for rubbing.
