Eczema

What is eczema?

Melasma is a skin condition that affects women, causing dark patches on the skin primarily on the stomach and face. While pregnant women have a higher chance of melasma, women who are not pregnant can also experience it. It is also referred to as chloasma or pregnancy mask. 

What causes eczema?

For some, eczema could possibly be related to a gene variation, affecting the skin's ability to provide protection. This weak barrier function means your skin has less ability to retain moisture and protect itself against bacteria, irritants and environmental factors (such as tobacco smoke).

Other cases could be related to too much of the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus on your skin, displacing helpful bacteria and disrupting your skin’s barrier function. With a weak skin barrier function, it might also trigger an immune system reaction causing the skin to be inflamed and other symptoms.

Eczema is only one type of dermatitis – it is best to see a doctor to identify which type you have before seeking treatment.

What are the symptoms of eczema?

  • Dry, cracked and crusty skin
  • Itchy skin
  • Rashes on swollen skin
  • Oozing fluids
  • Thickened skin
  • Darkening of the skin around your eyes
  • Raw, sensitive skin from scratching

Is eczema painful?

Eczema does not typically cause pain. You might feel pain if you scratch your skin too much; excessive scratching can break the surface of your skin. This can create a sore which could be painful if left untreated.

Patients with severe eczema report feeling a burning sensation or discomfort due to the dryness of the skin and as a result, restricted movement

Frequently Asked Questions

Is eczema a fungal infection?

Both fungal infections and eczema are similar in appearance and symptoms — itchy, dry and inflamed skin. But they differ in terms of their causes and treatments.

What stops eczema from spreading?

Severe eczema outbreaks can be calmed down by applying a thin layer of steroid cream and wrapping a damp bandage on the affected area to keep it moist. If it still doesn’t subside or keeps you up at night, it is best to visit your doctor for a check-up.

Does eczema go away?

In most cases, eczema develops in early childhood. Some of these cases are resolved on its own but, for most, it is a permanent skin condition with no cure. Treatment options available can only manage the spread of eczema and minimise flare-ups.

Is eczema a serious problem?

For those with the condition, eczema is more of an inconvenience than a serious problem. It becomes serious if your skin is cracked and broken as this can run the risk of your skin becoming infected with bacteria. This risk increases if you scratch your eczema and do not treat it immediately, causing a bacterial infection (fluid oozing from the skin).
