Eczema or atopic dermatitis is a skin disease that appears in children and some adults with especially sensitive skin.. It is a chronic disorder (that is to say, that can last for years), which means that the child will have better and worse times, depending on the weather, the season of the year, the hydration status of the skin, pollution (especially in cities), excessive hygiene with the use of soaps with detergents, water hardness, etc.

Atopic dermatitis has a large genetic component, that is to say, there is an alteration in the normal composition of the skin that is inherited in the family.
