Axar.az reports citing AA that speaking on the occasion of the European Atopic Eczema Awareness Day on Sept. 14, Dr. Emel Bulbul Baskan, a board member of Psoriasis Association told that eczema is one of the most common non-infectious skin problems globally.
"One in every five children in the world is struggling with eczema. The presence of atopic dermatitis [eczema] raises twice or thrice if either mother or father has the disease, and it raises 3 to 5 times if both parents have it," Baskan said.
"Eczema can cause depression, anxiety, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder in children," she said.
"Itching is an important feature, especially at night and sweating increases severely," she added.
"Color change around the eye, extra lines under the eye, increase in palm lines, dry skin, pale parts in the middle of the face, rough appearance on the shoulders and arms, and white spots on the cheeks are other symptoms of the disease," Baskan said.
