Symptoms of Eczema

Have you found your skin breaking into rashes right after you applied a new creme? That's your skin trying to tell you "there is something in it that I'm not liking, so stop using it!" Irritants, stress, genes, you can't fight them all! Despite your best efforts eczema does flare its ugly head when you are looking the other way.

The warning bells for eczema ring differently depending on the type of Eczema. Eczema generally makes an appearance with itchy and scratchy skin which can sometimes develop to scaly skin. Eczema flares can sometimes result in red inflamed, cracked skin which is extremely prone to infections. Further, bacteria infection on such skin conditions can worsen the eczema condition to cause crusting and scabbing of skin and sometimes even cause blisters resulting in fluids oozing out; an eczema condition termed as "wet" eczema. Eczema can also result in thickened skin and changes in skin color.

A look at the medical journal tells us that:

  • Contact eczema is triggered when the body is in contact with an irritant. The skin starts showing it's displeasure with a rash in the area where the skin is in contact with the trigger substance. If left unattended this can spread throughout the body.
  • Atopic eczema is a genetic condition. The symptoms in this type of eczema tend to occur in the face and/or in the skin creases such as inside of elbows, knees and ankles. If left unattended the condition may spread through the whole body.
  • Another variety is seborrhoeic eczema. A very common occurrence of this is dandruff. The skin may be greasy or scaly and it generally makes an appearance on the face, chest and scalp.

    Random Useful Tip:

    Random Drug Info:
    Acyclovir is a medication that is used to treat herpes infections of the skin, lips and genitals, chicken pox and shingles. It comes in the form of ointments, tablets, capsules or liquids. It relieves pain and itchiness and promotes healing; however, it does not cure the condition. Possible (but not common) side effects include headaches, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Severe side effects, such as severe rash or itching, blood in the urine, stomach pain or fever are even less common, but require prompt medical attention.
