What is the difference between eczema and atopic dermatitis?
Eczema is a general term for a manifestation of dermatitis.
Atopic dermatitis is one very common cause of eczema.
No. Skin asthma is also known as atopic dermatitis or eczema. It is a non-contagious, common chronic skin disorder of long duration. Atopic is another word for allergy like asthma and hay fever. Dermatitis means skin inflammation. The main feature of atopic dermatitis is itchy skin usually causing the affected person to scratch which further increases the itchiness. This leads to a vicious cycle of increased itchiness and vigorous scratching, complicating the condition.
What are the tiny bumps that come up on your hands and fingers don't hurt unless apply pressure like trying to open a jar or bottle seems to last about a week?
You could have an allergy to something around the home, or something outside your home that could cause your skin to have an inflammation.There is also a possibility that it could be a type of dermatitis such as Eczema Dermatitis (Eczema,) also known as Atopic Dermatitis. I highly recommend that you see your doctor.
