Lawsuit info for eczema drug medication injury
Eczema is a form of dermatitis, a skin irritation characterized by red, flaky skin, sometimes with cracks or tiny blisters. It is very itchy, but scratching damages the fragile skin and exacerbates the problem, so it is important for people with eczema to try to leave the area alone.
Allergenic . . .
There are several causes of dermatitis, but the most common ones are related to allergies.
|•||(L20) Atopic eczema, the most common, is caused by general systemic allergic reactions, as opposed to contact with an irritant. It is very common in people with related allergic conditions, including asthma or chronic hay fever.|
|•||(L23) Allergic contact dermatitis, as the name implies, is the result of direct contact with an irritant. One of the most common causes of this form are buttons and rivets in jeans, which contain nickel.|
|•||(L24) Irritant contact dermatitis is similar but is caused by a reaction to some chemical substance, often unrinsed detergents left on clothing or various household chemicals being handled. Often, the inflammation occurs mainly on the hands and feet, as the hands come in contact with most of the chemicals that a person may encounter, and the environment for shoe-clad feet is warm and moist, perfect for fungal infections to begin.|
Non-allergenic . . .
Several other forms appear unrelated to the main allergic causes.
|•||(L21.0) Infantile seborrhoeic eczema, also known as Cradle Cap, forms on the head and quickly spreads. It looks like normal dermatitis, but apparently doesn't itch and eventually goes away on its own.|
|•||(L21) Adult seborrhoeic dermatitis typically affects those between 20 and 40 years old. It affects the scalp, face, and upper body.|
|•||(I83.1) Varicose eczema occurs later in life, the result of poor circulation in the legs.|
|•||(L30.0) Finally discoid eczema suddenly appears as small disk shaped spots of severe dermatitis, but disappear on their own. Stress and anxiety can make otherwise minor outbreaks spread in some people. Deep unresolved or suppressed emotions are believed by some to be expressed externally in the form of physical skin conditions such as dermatitis (this being borne out by increased irritation at times of emotional upset such as anger or stress).|
|•||Low humidity is also thought to exacerbate dermatitis.|
Eczema diagnosis . . .
Eczema diagnosis is generally based on the appearance of inflamed, itchy skin in eczema sensitive areas such as face, chest and other skin crease areas. However, given to the many possible reasons of eczema flare ups, a doctor is likely to ascertain a number of other things before making a judgment:
|•||An insight to family history|
|•||Any prescribed drug intake|
|•||Any chemical or material exposure at home or workplace|
