At IHYA Clinic in Birmingham we are experts in skin, and not only for anti-ageing concerns.

We understand that some skin conditions can be a nuisance at best but debilitating and painful at worst, so we use our medical expertise to help our patients ease the burning, itching and emotional upset of some skin conditions, to manage flair-ups more effectively and be more comfortable each day.

Causes of eczema

Atopic eczema is one of the most common forms of eczema and is a condition which can cause the skin to become dry, itchy and in more severe cases, cracked and sometimes infected.

Atopic eczema often develops in babies, before their first birthday but can also develop in adulthood. Eczema is usually a long-term condition but can improve significantly over time and in some cases, clear completely, as children get older.

Eczema can be a result of genetics and if you are someone whose parents have experienced eczema, you are more likely to have the condition. Eczema is not a contagious skin condition so cannot be passed on through close contact.

Symptoms of eczema

The symptoms of eczema can come and go and there can be periods of a ‘flare up’ which can be ‘triggered’ by certain environmental factors, allergies (such as milk allergies), lifestyle or dietary factors, or chemicals used on the skin or on bedding and clothing for example.
People with atopic eczema tend to have very dry skin, as their skin is unable to retain moisture, therefore treatments to restore the hydration of the skin, are favourable.
