Signs of Eczema
If you’ve got eczema you have patches of inflamed, red, itchy skin anything from the size of a ten pence piece upwards. They tend to be in the bends of elbows and behind the knees on both sides of the body so if you have it at one elbow bend, you will also tend to have it on the other side as well. Although we don’t know why eczema is so itchy and makes you want to scratch your skin all the time it does seem that the dryness of the skin is a big thing and the more that you scratch, the more it will itch… sorry.
Eczema is not dangerous but it can make you a bit miserable because it is so itchy.
