Eczema is a group of conditions that cause inflammation of the skin, the most common type being atopic dermatitis. Eczema is not contagious. Genetics play a role in the development of this chronic inflammatory skin disease
Symptoms often appear as an itchy rash on the skin. In more severe cases, the inflamed and dry skin may crack, bleed and even become infected.
Anti-inflammatory medications such as steroids and steroid-free creams are typically used to control inflammation.
Health science authority of Singapore approved a new biologic treatment (known as Dupilumab) in 2019. Dupilumab, an injection non- steroid therapy, has been found to be effective in the treatment of moderate to severe atopic dermatitis.
