Especially in the cold season, eczema can aggravate. Red scaly patches that itch and sometimes even blister are the consequences. The skin is vulnerable and through minor injuries (scratching!), bacteria can invade to the skin (see also erysipelas). Eczemas are in principal chronic but can be a serious challenge in daily life. An appropriate treatment should therefore include a longterm strategy to prevent relapses. (Regarding prevention of allergies, please see our article about allergen immunotherapy).
