Eczema (also known as dermatitis) is a dry skin condition. It is a highly individual condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms. It is not contagious so you cannot catch it from someone else. Each year the National Eczema Society aim to raise awareness of this condition during National Eczema week.
