Characterizing a skin disorder, the term’eczema’ has been derived from a Greek word, which means ‘to boil’. There are various types of eczema that can affect a person – atopic eczema, allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, infantile seborrhoeic eczema, adult seborrhoeic eczema, varicose eczema and discoid eczema. Eczema causes inflammation of the skin and formation of pustules. At times, pus or fluid also comes out from the pustules. Though a non contagious disease, it might be a serious problem during infancy.
