Eczema is a skin disorder where the affected areas develop red, itchy patches all over them. Some eczema kinds cause the skin to remain dry and flaky, while others may become infected and may have an oozy appearance. Although the actual cause of eczema is unknown, it causes a  heightened immune response. Common symptoms include cracked and dry skin, rash, swollen skin, itchiness, raised bumps that are small in size, crusting, sensitive skin, thickened skin, etc. Topical and oral medications are used to treat eczema.
