FAQ

Skin Conditions Eczema
What is it and how do I manage it?

Eczema is a well-known dry, inflammatory skin condition. Although it is mainly seen as a problem in children, it can affect people of all ages. You may find that, even if you have ‘grown out’ of childhood eczema, it can come back when you are an adult. Although the exact cause of eczema is not known, your genetics play a role, so you may find it runs in your family.

What you might not realise is there are many different types of eczema that can affect different body parts. The good news is that eczema is not contagious, but you may have times when it is worse than others – this is known as a flare-up.

If you have eczema, your skin is different to the skin in healthy people. It may not produce as much fats and oils, which makes it harder to trap moisture in your skin. This weakens your skin barrier leading to dry, irritated, cracked skin. Eczema skin is more prone to irritation and allergic reactions, making your skin red and inflamed.

Eczema can be itchy, making you scratch – and further damaging your skin in the process. This itch-scratch cycle can then continue to make your eczema worse.

Side Effects

Like all skin products, E45 Eczema Repair Cream can cause side effects, however, this may be less likely.

  • Do not use it, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
  • If any irritation occurs, discontinue use.

If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor, our Rightdose pharmacists or nurse. This includes any possible side effects not listed in this leaflet.

You can help to make medicines safer by reporting any side-effects to the Yellow Card Scheme at www.mhra.gov.uk/yellowcard.

Itchy skin

When we get an itch, it’s human nature to scratch it. But for some people, itching – known medically as pruritus – can be a big problem.

There are many causes of itchiness, from dry skin to pregnancy to conditions such as eczema. Significantly itchy skin is common, affecting around 8-9% of people in any two week period.

Most of us can manage to keep our itching under control, but for others it can set up something called the itch-scratch cycle. Your skin feels itchy, so you scratch to relieve the itch, but this makes the skin feel irritated and itchy, so you scratch again. All this scratching then damages your skin barrier, leading to the following conditions:

  • Broken skin
  • Bleeding skin
  • Red skin
  • Thickened skin
  • Skin infections (getting in through broken skin)

  • Suitable for all ages over 3 months.

Atopic eczema (atopic dermatitis)

There is no single known cause for atopic eczema, which is also known as atopic dermatitis. This long-term inflammatory skin condition is often genetic, with around half of cases linked to a specific gene. It can also be caused by your immune system or can be triggered and made worse by factors in our environment like extreme temperatures, soap, detergent, pollen, animal dander, house-dust mites and rough clothing.

Symptoms can be mild, meaning patches of dry skin, occasional itching and maybe some redness. Moderate symptoms include patches of red, dry skin, frequent itching, which can cause the skin to thicken; all of which can result in disrupted sleep. In severe cases, large red areas develop, with dry skin that is always itchy and cracked, which may bleed or ooze. In severe eczema, the effects go beyond the skin; in children it can limit their ability to do everyday activities, affects their quality of life and can make it hard for them to sleep through every night.

Although it can affect any part of your body, atopic eczema is most common on your scalp and between your body creases like knees, elbows and armpits; in infants the face is also a common area that is affected. It usually starts in childhood, with up to 90% of cases in children under five years of age. Although 10-30% of children have atopic eczema, they often grow out of it – as only 2-10% of adults are affected. The condition is more common if you have asthma and/or hayfever.

Seborrhoeic eczema (seborrhoeic dermatitis)

This form of eczema is found in the parts of the skin where there are lots of sebaceous (oily) glands, such as the scalp, face and centre of the chest. Also known as seborrhoeic dermatitis, it’s believed to be caused by an inflammatory reaction to the overgrowth of a yeast that lives normally on the skin called Pityrosporum ovale. There are two types of seborrhoeic eczema: one that affects adults and one that affects infants.

Your skin will be pale red and inflamed with a greasy-looking white/yellow scale on top. In the skin folds, like your armpits or groin, your skin may look more glazed and you may not have any scales at all. Where your skin is more exposed, the scaliness is more obvious and yellow. Your skin may be itchy and, in severe cases, can even be painful.

Your skin may be itchy and, in severe cases, can even be painful.

Mild scalp seborrhoeic eczema causes flaking skin and is better known as dandruff. If the condition affects your face, you may develop red, scaly skin around your nose and cheeks. In rare cases, seborrhoeic eczema can spread and become more severe, affecting large parts of the body but is not contagious.

Seborrhoeic eczema can affect people of any age, though in children you probably know it better as ‘cradle cap’. Around 4% of the population have seborrhoeic eczema, with dandruff affecting up to half of all adults. It’s more common in men, particularly those around 30 years old. For women, the peak time of developing the condition is around 40 years of age. If you have another skin condition called psoriasis, you may find you also have seborrhoeic eczema at the same time.
