Itchy inflammation of the skin called eczema is associated with varying degree of other features like:

  • redness of affected areas of skin
  • generally dry skin, that often is thickened in the areas that have been scratched
  • lumps or blisters in affected areas
  • signs of superficial infection, such as weeping or crusty deposits.


As indicated by specialists, the skin inflammation is partitioned into little number of subgroups which for the most part depend on the variables that cause the dermatitis in every patient. Still, specify that indications and appearance of the skin in every one of these sorts might be precisely the same.

In fact, this classification system is not perfect due to the fact that commonly it is difficult or even impossible accurately to say what caused eczema.

Moreover, when it comes to lines of treatment of the different types of eczema, they also are very similar.

So, it is important to take under consideration the particular factors that caused an individual’s eczema. For instance, if the eczema occurred due to exposure to an irritant substance at work – the removal or protection from this irritant (cause) will be the most important part in managing the eczema at that patient, compared to some other person who doesn’t have such history of exposure.

Main groups

  • Atopic is ‘allergic’ type that mostly is seen in people who also have fever or asthma.
  • Allergic contact is caused by skin contact to a substance to which the patient is sensitive. It is important to mention that the same substance does not cause eczema at person who is not sensitive to it.
  • Irritant contact is caused by skin contact with irritating chemicals, powders, cleaning agents, etc. There are high chances that contact with such substance will cause eczema at any person, but still there is degree of individual variation.
  • Discoid appears as discrete islands of eczema on a background of normal skin.
  • Seborrhoeic in infants occurs in the nappy area and the scalp. This type also occurs at adults, on the scalp and eyebrows, and in the skin creases between the nose and sides of the mouth. Usually is caused by an increased sensitivity to yeast living on the skin.
  • Others: miscellaneous group including eczema of the legs caused by varicose veins (varicose/gravitational eczema) and pompholyx – an intensely itchy form located on the hands and composed of small or (sometimes) large blisters.
