Although it can sometimes look unpleasant, eczema is not contagious. It can occur along with poor immune function, asthma, hay fever, uticaria and migraine. In atopic eczema there is sensitivity to allergens in the environment, which are harmless to others. Other types of eczema are caused by irritants such as chemicals and detergents, allergens such as nickel, and yeast growths. The most common trigger is food sensitivity. Eczema often occurs where there is a familial tendency to any of these conditions. Although it can occur at any age it is most common in infants, completely clearing in half the cases by 18 months of age.
