Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a pruritic, chronic, relapsing inflammatory skin disease, which has been increasing in prevalence since the 1960s; it affects up to 20% of people worldwide. An epidemiological survey found the highest rates to be in industrialised nations, including Australia and New Zealand, and suggested the increase in prevalence is due to interactions between genetic and environmental factors. Even though eczema is seen across all ages, it is most common in children, with 50% of the cases diagnosed by the age of one.
