Symptoms of eczema

Areas of affected skin can worsen if they are irritated by scratching or picking. Rash-like symptoms also present differently depending on skin type, becoming red on lighter skin and purple or grey on darker skin.

Symptoms of eczema appear more severely during a flare-up episode, which can occur as often as three times per month for some people. When the skin is not inflamed, the condition generally improves with some patients even reporting zero visible symptoms.

Along with the most common symptoms of eczema (such as itching, redness and rashes) some people may also experience:


  • Highly sensitive skin
  • Oozing and crusting
  • Thickened skin
  • Raised bumps
  • Cracked skin
Eczema Symptoms

For many people eczema is not only uncomfortable, but can also lead to issues with every day tasks.

If your symptoms worsen, it may be a warning sign of the early stages of infection. It’s time to see your healthcare professional if you experience yellow crusting, severe swelling, increased pain, signs of fever or oozing fluid from the affected area.
