Meaning of Eczema
Dermatitis, also known as eczema, is inflammation of the skin. It is characterized by itchy, erythematous, vesicular, weeping, and crusting patches. The term eczema is also commonly used to describe atopic dermatitis - See link


Eczema in Spanish is Sarpullido
Un sarpullido es una erupción leve y pasajera en la piel, formada por numerosos granitos muy pequeños o también ronchas. Se produce por la obstrucción de las glándulas sudoríparas, como consecuencia de altas temperaturas, que ocasiona una infección en la piel. Se ve como microvesículas rojizas y aparecen especialmente en: cuello, axilas, brazos, etc. Es más frecuente en verano por el incremento de la sudoración, aunque también es sumamente frecuente en niños pequeños que permanecen excesivamente abrigados durante el invierno. - See link
