Eczema refers to a skin condition characterized by red, elevated, bumpy patches of skin associated with itching and dryness of the skin.
Eczema is a common skin condition. It affects people with dry and sensitive skin. The affected area is red, inflamed. Moreover, it can blister or crack.

Therefore, this makes the skin flaky and prone to develop eczema.
Moreover, eczema can also be an allergic reaction to food, pollen, soaps, perfumes, medications which can act as triggers. Moreover, heredity, immune disorders, and stress can also be one of the causes of eczema.
