Symptoms and Causes of Face Eczema
There are many factors that contribute to the creation of face eczema and among them are prolonged stress, allergies, hormonal fluctuations, dry weather and pollutants. These are the most common causes of the eczema in general and not only the face eczema. Parents who have eczema usually transfer the problem to their children, and this happens in 80% of cases. Seborrhoeic and atopic eczema are the two most common types of face eczema. Sides of the nose, areas around the eyes and eyelids are facial areas that are mostly affected by eczema. The spots created by the eczema may be flat, elevated, inflamed or reddish, while the skin affected by the problem usually becomes irritated, itchy and dry. In some cases, lichenification can occur, which is a thickening of the skin, caused by the constant scratching. The face eczema may be followed by red rash on the face and then by fluid filled blisters. The blisters then pop and the fluid is removed, but for this to happen several days have to pass. After popping, the blister will crust and heal.
It is hard to treat the face eczema, because of the delicate area in which it usually appears, and because detecting the exact cause of the problem may prove to be difficult. The symptoms of the atopic eczema can be brought under control, but the problem usually cannot be treated. As we have said, the exact cause is difficult to find, so the treatment depends on finding the exact product for the treatment. It is best to use some natural products, but remember to read the ingredient list before you start to use any product. If the problem is persistent, visit a dermatologist who will probably give you some creams for eczema and medications, like steroids, antihistamines, antibiotics and others.
