About

Nummular eczema is a chronic and itchy skin rash that’s coin-shaped.

Nummular eczema resembles ringworm infection. Known triggers include skin injuries such as burns, abrasions, or insect bites.

Nummular eczema is self-diagnosable. Symptoms include:
- Single or multiple coin-shaped patches on arms, legs, torso and/or hands.
- Itching and burning sensation, with lesions that ooze liquid or have crusted over.
- Red, pinkish or brown, scaly and inflamed skin around the lesions.

Treatment

Self-care:
Moisturize your skin regularly. This helps in calming and protecting your skin.
