What Is The Difference Between Eczema And Atopic Dermatitis?
- Jul 09, 2018 -

 eczema is a general term for dermatitis, which simply means inflammation of the skin. All types of  eczema  cause itching and redness and some will blister, weep or peel. 

There are several types of  eczema . Atopic dermatitis considered a severe and chronic (long-lasting) form.

The term  eczema is often used interchangeably with “atopic dermatitis.” However, each type of  eczema , including atopic dermatitis, has somewhat different triggers, symptoms and treatments. That’s why it’s important to know which type or types (since a person can have more than one type at the same time) you have, so that you are best able to manage it.
