Eczema can occur anywhere there is skin
Eczema in adults is a chronic inflammatory condition of the skin, which is the largest organ in the human body. While particular sites are more commonly affected, eczema can erupt wherever there is skin. That means it can occur anywhere and everywhere on the body, attacking the outer skin layer that acts as a protective barrier. When inflamed by eczema, the outer layer itches intensely. Scratching “breaks” the barrier, exacerbating the rash and increasing risk for infection.
