Nummular eczema is a chronic skin condition, which means that it will remain with the patient for the rest of their lives. Women will usually develop the condition when they are quite young, while men will usually develop it from around 55 to 65 years old.
The condition is not contagious, although it is characterized by coin-shaped patches on the skin. While the condition cannot be cured, it can at least be treated to help ease the symptoms and make the patient feel more comfortable.
Here are a few of the signs that you may have nummular eczema.
Symptom #1: Reddish Spots
One of the first symptoms of nummular eczema is the appearance of very small, reddish spots on the skin. They can also be accompanied by sores that resemble blisters, and these are likely to be leaking fluid. It may be barely noticeable at first, but the condition will gradually worsen.
A rash can sometimes be a sign of something quite serious. Rashes are also quite common, however, and not usually something to be worried about, so we will often overlook them as not being serious. If you do have a rash or any other skin condition that you feel is not normal, you should arrange to get it checked out.
