The Many Types of Eczema & Their Symptoms

If you’ve taken to the internet to diagnose a rash, you know how hard it can be to classify skin irritation. Eczema, especially, can be hard to place. Presenting with numerous symptoms and often masquerading as other ailments, eczema requires a trained eye to spot.

General skin irritation shares a lot in common with eczema. To make matters more complicated, there are several different kinds of eczema with their own symptoms, triggers, and treatments.

Types of Eczema:

  • Atopic Dermatitis: This most common kind of eczema results in dry, scaly, itchy skin.
  • Contact Dermatitis: Caused by an allergic response, this eczema produces swelling and itching skin patches.
  • Dyshidrotic eczema: This form of eczema has no single known cause, but often results in blisters and thick skin patches.
  • Neurodermatitis: Typified by intense itchiness, this form of eczema can sometimes cause vibrantly colored skin patches.
  • Nummular eczema: Identifiable by round or oval lesions that may ooze or crust over, this form of eczema occurs more often in males.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis: This form of eczema is particular to the scalp and often results in scaly, red patches under the hair.

Leading Eczema Treatments in Chicago

At Skin MD, we may start with a patch testing procedure to see if we can uncover triggers for your flare-ups.

What Patients Say About Eczema Treatments

A Caring, Human Touch

Dr. Sergeyenko is fantastic. He’s very detailed and attentive and seems to really care about patients. The office is very well run and uses the right amount of technology to execute their business…but you can always get a human on the line if you need to. Flexible hours, too.

Your Questions Answered

Eczema FAQs

Unfortunately, eczema has many common and complicated causes. On average, eczema triggers fall into several categories: allergic reactions/overactive immune responses, genetics, and environmental factors.

Depending on which form of eczema you experience, common triggers may include reactions to cleaners or soaps, dry air, temperature extremes (hot and cold), some fabrics, metals (especially nickel), and dusty or dirty environments. To get to the bottom of your eczema, call 708-636-3767 today.

Eczema takes many forms, but the most common symptoms include dry, flaky, leathery, inflamed, or oozing skin patches and sores. During your eczema appointment, the expert dermatologists at Skin MD in Chicago may recommend a patch test to uncover your triggers and examine your skin’s reaction. Afterward, we should be able to diagnose and treat your symptoms better.
No, eczema is not contagious. Regardless of which form of eczema you have, it is not possible to pass it from person to person. Because eczema weakens the skin barrier, certain flare-ups or outbreaks may make it easier to contract communicable infections. But on average, you don’t have to worry about causing rashes in others.
