There are several kinds of eczema, including atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and contact dermatitis. Please note that many people use eczema and atopic dermatitis interchangeably; that’s because atopic dermatitis is the most common type of eczema.
What Does Eczema Look Like?
How eczema looks can differ from one child to another. Sometimes, the rashes appear all over the body; in some cases there’s only one area affected. In babies, it usually starts in the head and face. For young children, rashes could develop in the back of the knee, elbow crease, or around the eyes.
Additionally, please note that people experience exacerbation periods (flare-ups) when the rashes worsen and remissions when they get better. This is why it’s crucial to identify what can trigger flare-ups.
