Eczema or atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic skin condition that causes red, itchy and inflamed patches on the skin, and is more common among children. Key factors that make eczema worse include dry skin, infection from bacteria and viruses, chemical irritants, etc. Atopic dermatitis is the most common type. Other types include hand eczema, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, and nummular dermatitis. Though there is no specific cure for the condition, timely treatment combined with proper self-care measures can help reduce the itching in the long run. A combination of therapies such as medication, skincare, and lifestyle changes may be recommended.

Billing and coding for inflammatory skin conditions can be complex, as there are several associated codes. Dermatologists can rely on professional medical coding outsourcing companies to ensure accurate coding and timely claim filing for appropriate reimbursement.
