A Retrospective Study of 120 Patients with Eczema in Greece
Eczema in an Allergic Department in Greece
Object ives: Eczema is a common chronic and troublesome disease for the patients and the parents. The knowledge of the process of disease and management of treatment and comorbidities is important.
Methods: This is a retrospective study of 120 patients.
Results : A significant number of patients had sensitization of no clinical importance.
Most of them responded well to hydration treatment and they did not need more sophisticated drugs.
Conclusions: Eczema is a chronic disease with exacerbations and remissions. However,
environmental factors rather than foods and aeroallergens contribute to exacerbations.
Educating parents and patients properly about the hydration of epidermis and the use of anti-inflammatory drugs could help in long term remissions.
