Eczema – Nummular Eczema

May 8th, 2011

Nummular Eczema is a very common type of Eczema, which I encounter on a very frequent basis in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices.  Nummular Eczema is most often found on the legs and arms and occasionally on the trunk.  The itching in Nummular Eczema can be severe.  Clinically, the skin lesions in Nummular Eczema appear as small round circular red scaly plaques.  Nummular Eczema is a type of Eczema most often seen in adolescents and adults and is usually not encountered in children.  The typical atopic skin care regimen of emollients and steroid creams is used to treat Nummular Eczema.
