Nummular eczema - Definition


Definition


Nummular eczema, a cutaneous affliction, is a form of eczema that is very recognizable by its ringed lesions of one to five centimeters in diameter. An acute form is marked by seepage then scab formation, while in a chronic form there is shedding. Nummular eczema particularly affects smokers, excessive drinkers, young women and elderly people who are exposed to irritating products and already have skin with a tendency towards dryness. The treatment of nummular or disk-shaped eczema is the use of a corticoid cream accompanied by emollients or a local antibiotic.
