During an allergic flare-up, eczema triggers a release of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which are believed to play a critical role in dementia pathways.
Other researchers studying the link between eczema and dementia have made note-worthy discoveries too.
Scientists have shown that the skin condition may be linked to neuro-immune response which could impair specific brain functions and the circuits involved in memory and cognition.
