What is atopic eczema and who does it affect?
Atopic eczema is a type of eczema that causes the skin to become itchy, dry and cracked. It is the most common form of eczema. Atopic eczema is more prevalent in children and can develop before their first birthday. However, it can also occur for the first time in adults. The condition can be triggered by a range of factors such as genetics, environmental factors, and immune system dysfunction. The symptoms of atopic eczema can range from mild to severe, and treatment options include emollients, topical corticosteroids, and antihistamines.
What is ichthyosis and what are its symptoms?
Ichthyosis is a group of skin disorders that result in dry, itchy skin with a scaly, rough, and red appearance. The severity of the symptoms can range from mild to severe, and in some cases, internal organs may also be affected. Most people inherit ichthyosis from their parents through a mutated gene, but some may develop it from certain medical disorders or medications. Although there is no cure for ichthyosis currently, there are treatments available to help manage the symptoms, and ongoing research may lead to future advancements in treatment.
