What Are The Symptoms Of Eczema?
- Jul 09, 2018 -

The most important thing to remember is that eczema  and its symptoms are different for everyone. Your  eczema may not look the same on you as it does on another adult, or on your child. It may even appear in different areas of the body at different times.


 eczema  is usually itchy. For many people, the itch is usually only mild, or moderate. But in some cases it can become much worse and you might develop extremely inflamed skin. Sometimes the itch gets so bad that people scratch it until it bleeds, which can make your  eczema  worse. This is called the “itch-scratch cycle.”

What to look for:

  • Dry, sensitive skin

  • Red, inflamed skin

  • Very bad itching

  • Dark colored patches of skin

  • Rough, leathery or scaly patches of skin

  • Oozing or crusting

  • Areas of swelling

You might have all of these symptoms of  eczema or only just a few. You might have some flare ups or your symptoms could go away entirely. But the only way to know if you have eczema for sure, is to visit your doctor so he or she can look at your skin and ask you about your symptoms.
