Symptoms and Causes

Atopic dermatitis or eczema symptoms are as follows:

  • Rash on swollen skin that varies in color depending on your skin color
  • Raw, sensitive skin from scratching
  • Small, raised bumps on brown or Black skin
  • Dry, cracked skin
  • Thickened skin
  • Darkening of the skin around the eyes
  • Itchiness (pruritus
  • Oozing and crusting

Eczema can be caused by genetic, bacterial infection, or immune system reaction. 

  • In some people, a gene is present, causing the poor function of skin protective layer, which results in a decline in skin moisture and gives entry to harmful pathogens, irritants, and allergens, causing eczema.
  • Atopic dermatitis is sometimes linked to excess Staphylococcus aureus bacteria on the skin. This disrupts the skin’s natural barrier function by displacing helpful bacteria. 
  • A compromised skin barrier function can trigger an immune system response, leading to inflammation and other eczema symptoms.

It’s essential to note that Atopic Dermatitis is just one type of dermatitis and is not contagious. Other common types include contact dermatitis and seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff).
