Eczema, an inflammation of the skin is marked by blisters (when severe), redness, fluid in the tissue, oozing, scales, crusts or scabs, burning or itching, and sometimes dryness. One of the more common types is atopic eczema which is a continuing, itching skin inflammation whose victims often have a family history of allergic diseases such as asthma or hay fever.

Most eczema cases can be treated effectively by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Many clinical studies in China reported that more than 85% of cases were cured and others showed improvement.
