Does the following cycle sound familiar? In eczema patients, the immune system (coupled with an impaired skin barrier) produces inflammation, contributing to the flare-ups on the surface of the skin.
Immune cells in the deep layers of your skin send inflammatory signals to the surface. This causes the urge to itch.
When you start scratching, you can further break down the outer layer of skin cells and allow germs, viruses and allergens to penetrate your body.
The more you scratch, the more your skin breaks down. That brings about more itching. The cycle continues.
