How is eczema diagnosed?
There is no test needed to diagnose eczema. Typically, a doctor can diagnose eczema simply by examining your skin and reviewing your medical history, including any allergies you may have.
Is eczema contagious?
No, you cannot “catch” eczema from another person or pass it to someone else.
What triggers eczema?
There are many things that can trigger an eczema flare-up, including dry skin, stress, sweat, hormones, changes in climate or weather patterns, certain foods or beverages, chemicals or irritants in everyday household products, and allergens such as pet dander, dust mites, mold, or pollen. However, none of these triggers alone actually causes eczema. The exact cause of eczema is unknown, but it is thought to be a combination of genes and environmental factors.
Is there a cure for eczema?
Unfortunately, there isn’t a cure for eczema just yet. Eczema is considered a chronic condition where flare-ups can occur and then disappear temporarily. Proper treatment, however, can help manage the symptoms of eczema and minimize their interference in a person’s life.
