It's itchy. It's scratchy. It's dry. It's annoying. It's something called Eczema, and it is a skin condition in which the skin is so dry that it actually causes the skin to become cracked and irritated. Broken down, eczema is just a fancy term for “severely dry skin”.
Also referred to as dermatitis, eczema can also refer to several different types of skin swelling. And while it is not dangerous, most types of eczema can cause redness or swelling at the site where it occurs. Most, if not all cases of eczema can be treated with some serious over the counter cream. However, for more severe cases (as if it wasn't already severe enough), you have to get one of those illegible notes from your doctor in order get a stronger cream to attack the issue.
