Eczema is commonly found in children, although adults can get it too. It is also called atopic dermatitis and can be treated with oral medication, steroid creams and light therapy. Eczema symptoms include itchy, red and dry skin caused by inflammation.
Doctors still do not know what causes eczema. The most common type of eczema, atopic dermatitis, resembles an allergy but the skin irritation is not an allergic reaction.
