Constitutional Eczema

What is Constitutional Eczema?

Constitutional eczema, also called atopic eczema, causes itchy, inflamed skin with dry flaking. Atopic eczema is a common, non-contagious, chronic inflammatory disease of the skin. Babies can get this too, after just a few weeks. In infants, atopic eczema is called dewworm.

What to do?

The doctor or dermatologist often prescribes a greasy ointment or cream that improves the moisture content of the skin. Dry skin is sensitive to itching, so it is better to apply a thin layer several times a day than a thick layer once or twice.

Good skin care prevents eczema from worsening. Use as little soap as possible and apply a neutral basic ointment to the skin several times a day.
