The summer season is almost here, much to the joy of schoolchildren everywhere. Summer brings a lot of fun activities: fishing, backyard grilling, picnics, family vacations, trips to the beach, and so on. Another feature of summer that most older people are familiar with is sunburn. In generations past, getting a sunburn was considered a normal rite of passage for enjoying the summer as a child, but the negative consequences of getting a sunburn are now well known. There are over 5.4 million cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer cases treated every year in the USA, and about 90% of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to UV rays from the sun. (1)

GETTING CORRECT DIAGNOSIS IS FIRST STEP IN DEALING WITH DISCOMFORT OF ECZEMA

Eczema has been called “the itch that rashes.”

The terms eczema and dermatitis are often used interchangeably to describe a reaction pattern of the skin that creates itching, redness and rashes. There are different types of eczema. Many people are familiar with the contact dermatitis rash that appears when they get too close to such things as poison ivy or certain chemicals. But for the more that 30 million people in the United States who are afflicted with atopic dermatitis, also called atopic eczema, a rash is more than a rash. It is the most common type of eczema, affecting 1 in 5 infants and young children, according to the National Institutes of Health.

The saying, “The best thing you can do for your health is pick your ancestors,” rings true when it comes to this type of eczema.
