Eczema Nursing Care Plan

There are many types of eczema, which have different causes. The most common types are atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis, either allergic or irritant. Atopic dermatitis often occurs in people who suffer from allergies. It can run in families and often occurs alongside other conditions such as asthma and hay fever.

Allergic contact dermatitis occurs when the skin becomes sensitised to something over a period of time and an allergic reaction occurs on re-exposure. Irritant contact dermatitis occurs when the skin comes in contact with something that strips away its natural oils and makes the skin red, dry, cracked and itchy. In mild cases, eczema is nothing more than a slightly irritating patch of sore skin, but in severe cases extensive areas of skin may become inflamed and unbearably itchy.

The Eczema Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
