This is a 9 year old young boy, who suffered from atopic dermatitis for 4 years.

Eczema may look different from person to person. Many substances have been identified as eczema "triggers", from shampoo and jewelry to food and water. Environmental and psychological factors also play a role, and triggers are not the same for every person. Many times it is difficult to identify the exact trigger that causes a flare-up.
