Caption: Skin disorder. The elbow of a patient affected by atopic eczema. This is an inflammation of the skin which causes itching and it is sometimes accompanied by scaling or blisters. Atopic eczema occurs without any obvious external cause and is commonly found in childhood, sometimes associated with a family history of allergy. For mild cases treatment consists of applying emollients, such as petroleum jelly, which keep the skin in the affected area soft. In severe cases corticosteroid drugs are prescribed and if bacterial infections develop, antibiotic drugs may be given.
