Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a long-lasting skin condition that causes the skin to be overly sensitive to many things. It can affect older children most often on the inside of the elbows, back of the knees, wrists, and neck. In younger children, it may just cause dry, rough patches of skin, particularly on the face and trunk. Sometimes the patches become open or even infected. It may appear thickened and leathery.
