Atopic dermatitis (commonly known as Eczema) is a skin condition. Its symptoms include itchy, scaly, red skin, and flaking or peeling of the skin.  The condition is commonly seen in infants, but can occur later in life.  An increased likelihood of this skin condition is found in individuals who have a family history of asthma or hay fever.
