    Eczema is caused by defectsin the skin tissue. Most children having eczema,lack a special protein called filaggrin in their outer skin layer. Filaggrin protects skin by acting as a strong barrier between the body and external environment. Skin deficient in filaggrinwill experience difficulty in holding water and fails to prevent bacteria and other environmental irritants.

    • Genetic factors
    • Environment factors
    • Hereditary
    • Associated with other allergic conditions such as asthma and allergic rhinitis
