My mother as a child had eczema. When I was younger I develoed Dyshidrosis on my hands as well as my sister devoping eczema on the cevis's of her body..for instance behind her knees, around her hip area where pants are usually tight, around her bra area and the inside aera of arm pits. She usually scrates it in the middle of the night while sleeping so then it spreds. As I get older ive noticed eczema has moved onto my face and my scalp. This is not only extemely embarrassing but alo burns and itches! im just hoping that its heredity because i have 2 chilfren and they have elreasdy experienced a mild case both a different way. So back to my origina question...is Eczema hereditary?????
