					Eczema is a very tormenting skin condition which is experienced by people
of all ages, from infancy to adulthood. Eczema has many types but some
of the common signs and symptoms include red, dry, inflamed skin. For
people suffering from this condition, it can be extremely itchy, produce
burning sensations and in severe cases cause blisters and sores. Eczema
is not only developed by humans but there is also eczema in dogs.
Since dogs are unable to voice their thoughts and feelings, how would an
owner recognize eczema in dogs? Eczema in dogs is quite similar to the
eczema in humans. A dog will develop red, dry patches that are inflamed
and sore looking. Where these patches of eczema are the dog will have
lost their fur or hair. As long as there is a spot of eczema, the fur
will not grow back. Of course since eczema is quite itchy, the owner will
notice the dog scratching the affected area quite frequently. This can be
quite harmful since continuous scratching will certainly cause the area
to become sore and probably bleed. If unattended, this eczema in dogs can
become infected.

  If you have a dog and suspect they have eczema, it's essential to make
an appointment with the vet. The dog will need treatment for their skin
condition which will likely be similar to treatments prescribed for
humans. The vet will probably prescribe a topical steroid cream to treat
eczema in dogs. If you notice your dog is scratching a particular area
continuously, chances are there's a problem. If you'd like to learn more
about eczema in dogs and other such skin conditions that can affect pets,
search the Internet. There are hundreds of websites devoted to caring for
pets which will likely include beneficial information about eczema in
dogs, as well as recommended treatments and measures to help your dog be
more comfortable.        Eczema in Dogs
