What causes atopic dermatitis?

Here’s what we know

Scientists aren’t sure exactly what causes eczema. But they do understand some of the contributing factors:

  • Excess inflammation that may be triggered by an overactive immune system can contribute to eczema symptoms
  • A compromised skin barrier allows moisture to escape and external irritants to enter the body, which may lead to the itch and rash of eczema
  • A personal or family history of allergies, asthma, or eczema puts you at higher risk of developing eczema
  • Everyday products and environmental factors such as soaps, fragrances, dust, pollen, and animal dander may further irritate symptoms
Understanding

the role of inflammation

When you have eczema, an overactive immune system may cause excess inflammation, contributing to symptoms like itch and rash. Explore treatment options that focus on helping reduce excess inflammation that’s related to symptoms.
