Eczema is common skin condition that causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked.
Eczema is a long-term (chronic) condition, although it mainly effects children it can also effect adults and can improve over time. Eczema can effect any part of the body but the most common areas are:
• Back or fronts of the knees
• Outside or inside of the elbows
• Around the neck
People suffering with Eczema tend to have periods where symptoms are less noticeable, followed by periods when symptoms become more severe (known as flare ups).
At Aesthetics Of Liverpool we use LED Light Therapy to treat Eczema and effectively reduce inflammation and itching.
Eczema can occur anywhere on the body and the severity can vary from person to person. Those with mild Eczema usually only have small areas of dry skin that are occasionally itchy, however with more severe Eczema it can be widespread and inflamed skin all over the body, causing a lot of itching and discomfort.
