Do you have dry, cracked and inflamed skin that is red to brownish-gray in color? Then you might be suffering from eczema. It usually appears in patches and may occur in any part of the body's skin, (hands, feet, arms, behind the knees, ankles, wrists, face, neck, and upper chest). It becomes very itchy and scratching will only worsen it and may also result in areas of thickened skin. A doctor will immediately recommend eczema treatment so it will not spread all throughout your body. Although it may not get rid of it for good, the treatment will improve your quality of life significantly. Don't wait till it gets worse, see a doctor as soon as you spot the symptoms.
