My toddler was just diagnosed with eczema, but it's strange and not "acting" like "regular" eczema, so I'm wondering if anyone can tell me the different types of eczema?
I understand there is a chronic type, that appears around 6 months, and most kids outgrow around 2-5 years of age. (My nieces both have eczema from food allergies, and they have red bumps and scars over most of their bodies).
My toddler just started showing signs around 1 year of age, and we haven't attributed it to food. Is there a type of eczema that is not chronic and is attributable to the environment (and not food)? His soap, towels, clothes, etc. have stayed the same. We moved from Virgina to Texas around this time, so could be a climate change??
Thanks so much!!! (oh---and I don't need any info. on treatment--yet---just really want to know about the different types of eczema).
