Eczema is a skin disease that affects the outer surface of the skin and is often known as atopic dermatitis or inflammation of the skin. This disease generally affects the children, though it can also start in the adulthood. A person affected by eczema will have an itchy and dry skin. According to the recent study the number of people affected by eczema is rising all over the globe.

I used to suffer from a lot of itching problem on the face especially around the eyes. I avoided this problem thinking it was not a major issue and soon I had inflammation on the skin and was diagnosed with Eczema. After taking the treatment from Dr. Ritu Bharadwaj, I feel much better.

I had an acute problem of Eczema and I used to scratch so much that my skin used to start bleeding. After searching for herbal treatment on internet, I found the Family Care Clinic and took medicines from them. I must say the doctors at Family Care Clinic are great and their treatment has cured me.

Eczema was a genetic problem in my family. I, my sister and my mother all suffered from this condition. I got in touch with Dr. Ritu and explained her about this disease; she gave a wonderful treatment that treated all three of us. Thank you for the treatment.
