Dry skin with a tendency to atopic eczema

Atopic dermatitis, or skin prone to atopic eczema, is an abnormality of the skin barrier that is characterized by the initiation of an inappropriate immune response. This is due to a personal and/or family predisposition of genetic origin. Environmental allergens (pollen, dust, animal hair, etc.), which are normally well tolerated, can then "penetrate" more deeply and stimulate the immune defense system. This highly reactive system will overreact to what it considers an aggression and lead to the clinical signs of atopy: itching, inflammation and oozing.
