Eczema rash on the chest of a young girl. Eczema is a superficial inflammation of the skin, mainly affecting the epidermis. It causes itching and a red rash, often accompanied by small blisters which weep and become crusted. Subsequent scaling, thickening or discolouration of the skin may occur. The term eczema is normally used to describe an inflammation of the skin that appears to arise without any obvious external causes (also referred to as endogenous or constitutional eczema). Treatment includes the use of soothing ointments and corticosteroids.
