800x515 Nummular Eczema Triggers Symptoms & Treatment

Nummular eczema (also known as discoid eczema and nummular dermatitis) is a common type of eczema. It is different than the usual eczema and can be much more difficult to treat.

Those suffering from nummular eczema develop circular-shaped spots on their skin, which become very itchy. Due to its fungal like appearance it can often appear to look like ring worm. The cause of nummular eczema is unknown, however researchers suspect it could be genetic.

Many people, even those who have severe nummular eczema seem to clear up completely and do not appear to have the long-term issues like other forms of eczema.

Symptoms of nummular eczema include

  • Round, coin-shaped spots
  • Itching
  • Dry, scaly skin
  • Wet, open sores

Triggers of Neurodermatitis

It is thought to be triggered by things like:

  • Insect bites
  • Reactions to skin inflammation
  • Dry skin in the colder months

What can you do to help control Neurodermatitis?

Like atopic dermatitis, nummular eczema benefits from moisturisers to calm and protect the damaged skin barrier.

Doctors may prescribe:

  • Steroid medication
  • In cases where steroids are not appropriate, your doctor may prescribe a non-corticosteroid topical medication
  • Topical or oral antibiotics
  • Oral antihistamines
