Also mentioned, the cause of eczema has a close relationship with the body’s immune system response that is too active against irritants or allergens. This response is what causes the symptoms of eczema. Besides, eczema is commonly found in families with a history of allergies or asthma, as well as defects in the skin barrier that cause germs to easily enter.
