eczema or atopic dermatitis


Eczema is a skin disease of allergic origin, acute or chronic. This very common skin disease generally manifests itself as red areas topped with blisters which cause severe itching. However, the symptoms and eczema treatments vary depending on its form. Discover in this article the symptoms and treatments associated with atopic eczema.


What is atopic eczema?

Atopic eczema, also called atopic dermatitis, is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), we speak of a “chronic disease” in the case of a long-term condition that evolves over time.

Often associated with food allergies, rhinitis or asthma attacks, atopic eczema generally develops in infants and children, however in 10% to 15% of cases it happens that eczema persists. adulthood. Atopic dermatitis is therefore a chronic, non-contagious skin disease characterized by dryness of the skin. It progresses through allergic outbreaks, which can lead to skin lesions such as redness and scales, and intense itching, altering the quality of life.


How are atopic eczema flare-ups triggered?

There are two main factors explaining atopic skin. The causes of atopic dermatitis are genetic and immunological.

Atopic eczema associated with genetic predisposition factors

Unlike contact eczema, which occurs when the child touches a specific substance, atopic eczema is associated with genetic predisposing factors. The term “atopy” refers to a hereditary predisposition to developing an allergy. Between 50 and 70% of individuals with atopic eczema have a first-degree relative who is also affected. If both parents are affected, the risk of the child developing allergic eczema reaches 80%.

In the case of atopic eczema, this allergy manifests itself as dermatitis. Its origin therefore lies in an alteration of the patients' skin barrier. It causes dryness of the epidermis and increased sensitivity to attacks. This alteration in the structure of the skin then allows allergens from the environment (pollens, dust, mites, etc.) to penetrate the epidermis. To defend itself, the immune system will react excessively, and redness, itching, inflammation and oozing will appear.

Inflammatory outbreaks favored by various environmental factors

Over the past forty years, the increase in the prevalence of atopic dermatitis indicates that environmental changes play a role in the phenomenon.

Many factors can contribute to this sudden increase: excessive hygiene and use of irritating products, such as soap, increased presence of domestic animals, early evolution and diversification of eating habits, exposure to tobacco and industrial urban pollution, etc. In order to identify the factors favoring eczema flare-ups, allergy tests are sometimes useful.

As we grow up, we find traces of eczema in the folds (folds of the elbows, folds of the knees, neck). So in adolescents and young adults, pruritus (itching) and lichenification (thickening of the skin, Red plaques) are the two dominant elements. It is also common for eczema to develop on the lips, this is called cheilitis.


Treatments for atopic eczema

The best treatment for eczema is prevention. Thus, in the context of atopic dermatitis, it consists of avoiding exposure to airborne allergens (pollen, mites, pollution, etc.) as much as possible. Desensitization is sometimes possible.
