What causes Eczema?

There have been no specific discoveries as to what causes eczema. In many cases, it is a genetic cause: this means there’s a likelihood for eczema to run in your family and you’re naturally more likely to develop the condition.

Eczema can also be made worse by irritants like soaps and detergents, or environmental allergens like heat, dust, wool or pets, or even the weather. These irritants don’t necessarily cause eczema, but can aggravate your skin and make it feel worse.
