Eczema isn’t contagious, so you can’t catch it by touching someone who has it. You’re more likely to develop eczema if someone in your family has it, which suggests it’s related to a genetic variation that affects your skin’s ability to stay hydrated.
People with a personal or family history of asthma, hay fever, or other allergies are at higher risk of getting eczema. Certain factors, such as stress and exposure to anything that irritates your skin may trigger an eczema flare-up.
