ECZEMA SYMPTOMS

Treatments delivered to your door

Rashes associated with eczema can appear anywhere on the body, however they most commonly manifest on the arms, hands or behind the knees.

Although the symptoms of eczema will vary from person to person, some of the most common signs include red rashes, dry or itchy skin, swelling and flaking skin.

Treat eczema with dermatologist-developed solutions, delivered to your door with hub.health.

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

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.

Our medical team can help you to better manage eczema outbreaks, with treatments personalised for your skin type and concerns.

Frequently asked questions

Eczema is a common inflammatory skin condition that presents as symptoms of itchiness, dry skin, scaly patches, rashes, blisters, and skin infections. There are seven different types of eczema: atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, nummular eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, and stasis dermatitis.

Symptoms of eczema vary from person to person, and can range from mild to severe:

  • Itchiness

  • Dry, sensitive skin

  • Inflamed, discoloured skin

  • Rough, scaly, leathery skin, often appearing in patches

  • Crusting or oozing

  • Swollen areas

No, eczema isn’t contagious, even when an active rash is present.

The cause of eczema is undetermined; however, it can run in families. Many people with eczema also have other allergic conditions, including hay fever and asthma.

 

Common triggers that can make eczema worse include:

  • Dry skin

  • Scratching the affected areas

  • Viral or bacterial infections

  • Emotional stress

  • Chemicals in swimming pools

  • Animals, dander, or house dust mites

  • Allergens that you can breathe in, like pollen

  • Some fabrics, carpets, bed linens, especially woollen or synthetic

  • Some body products, like soaps, shampoos, moisturisers etc.

  • Cleaning products, like surface cleaners and disinfectants

  • Artificial colours and preservatives

  • Fragrances, perfumes, and candles

  • Exposure to heat, cold, or dry air

Eczema manifests in different ways for different people, so treatment plans should be prescribed by a clinician on a case-by-case basis. Depending on your age and severity of symptoms, the hub.health medical team may prescribe a treatment plan including prescription grade topical moisturising cream, oral medications, phototherapy, over-the-counter remedies, immunosuppressants, lifestyle modifications, and behavioural therapies.

As a general guide, also try to:

  • Maintain and protect skin every day with moisturiser (even when you don’t have an active rash)

  • Avoid known triggers and irritants

  • Treat flare ups as soon as they arise

  • Control the itch

  • Prevent and treat infection
