Atopic eczema is a condition that causes the skin to become itchy, dry and cracked.
Atopic eczema is more common in children, often developing before their first birthday. But it may also develop for the first time in adults.
It’s usually a long-term (chronic) condition, although it can improve significantly, or even clear completely, in some children as they get older.
At Monkbar Pharmacy, we have treatment for atopic eczema for patients who are over 1 years old. Our pharmacists are specially trained to be able to supply medicines that usually require a prescription.
See the NHS website for more details.
