The skin is the largest organ of the body but receives the least amount of attention by the body. The skin is often the first organ to let us know there is a problem. For example, eczema (a.k.a., atopic dermatitis) is the most common skin rash in all ages. It occurs when there is underlying systemic inflammation. Eczema’s presentation can vary from severe dry, itchy skin to red, thickened, scaly patches generally located on the face, scalp, back of the knees, wrists, hands, elbows, or feet. Eczema is also often eventually accompanied with allergies or asthma.
