Eczema is caused by a combination of factors that include: Genetics, Abnormal function of the immune system, Environment, Activities that may cause skin to be more sensitive, Defects in the skin barrier that allow moisture out and germs in. Eczema is not contagious. Some of the most common eczema triggers: dry skin, irritants, stress, hotcCold temps and sweating, infection, allergens and hormones.5

In Ayurveda,  the term Kustha broadly covers almost all the skin diseases including eczema is is correlated with its subtype Vicharchika . As in general all the Kusthas are said to possess a Tridosha origin, Vicharchika can also be understood in the same way where Kandu (pruritis) in Vicharchika is caused due to Kapha dosha , Srava (discharge) due to Pitta and Shyavata (blackish discolouration) due to Vata dosha. As per Ayurvedic classics, Raktadushti (vitiation of blood) is one of the prime causes of skin diseases. Same is the case with Vicharchika, where it is considered to be a Rakta Pradosha Vikara (diseases caused due to the vitiation of blood) having involvement of three Dosha with specific dominance of Kapha.4
