Medical Definition of Atopic eczema

1. An inflammatory condition of the skin that includes redness, itching and oosing vesicular lesions which become scaly, crusted or hardened. Causes include hypersensitivity to chemicals, metals (nickel) or plants (for example Poison Ivy) or chronic irritation detergents or soaps. Anxiety, stress and depression may all play a role in the exacerbation of eczema. Those with atopic eczema may be discovered to have an increased eosinophil count in their blood. Treatment often includes mild anti-pruritic lotions and corticosteroid creams. Careful avoidance of any irritating substances will be mandatory. (27 Sep 1997)
