Eczema and atopic eczema are long term skin conditions caused by allergens and can occur anywhere on the body but are quite common on areas where the skin creases such as the backs of knees and inside of elbows.

Garments are recommended where the eczema is extensive and a large area of the body requires treatment whereas patch wrapping using a tubular bandage can be used to treat a small specific area of the body such as an arm or leg.
