Eczema

Also called dermatitis

What is eczema?

Eczema is a general term. Dermatologists use it to describe skin conditions that can cause the skin to swell and discolor. The skin is often dry and itchy. Sometimes blisters form.

The most common type of eczema is atopic dermatitis. When people say “eczema,” this is often what they mean — but not always. 

If your dermatologist diagnoses you with eczema, your dermatologist may use the word “dermatitis.” The words “eczema” and “dermatitis” often mean the same thing.
