Without any doubt the name atopic dermatitis is the other name used for Eczema, and as a matter of fact, is the term most often used to describe any inflammation or irritation of the skin, although, it's important to know that correctly speaking, not every dermatological irritant is eczema!
That notwithstanding, it is well established that Eczema is a series of lesions in the skin that are made up of many fluid filled vesicles. The skin becomes red, irritated and swollen, and can be characterized by oozing when the fluid filled vesicles burst!
