No one likes having a rash. Thy itch, burn, get infected, look bad and never seem to go away quickly or can easily be identified. Early stage of a rash they may look similiar to others and diagnosis becomes an issue. Two of the most common chronic conditions of rashes are eczema and psoriasis. Dermatitis is general term for skin inflammations and eczema and psoriasis both fall under the category.

Atopic dermtitis or eczema is a red, dry itchy rash. If it is not cared for then the affected area can become cracked, infected, and become leather like. Eczema can be developed simply from scratching or rubbing your skin long enough. Eczema is known as the "itch that rashes" Those with asthma often have eczema as well.
