Chronic Eczema: Symptoms

Chronic eczema is characterized by inflammatory skin lesions associated with intense itching or burning sensation. The skin is rough, dry and covered with scales. In chronic hand eczema, symptoms predominate on the back of the hands and fingers, but the lesions may extend to the wrists or forearms. In this form, itching is constant.

There are several forms of chronic hand eczema, whose symptoms differ. These include: irritative hand dermatitis, which results from the application of irritating chemicals to the skin; And dyshidrosis, which appears mainly on the lateral surface of the fingers, in the form of small pruriginous vesicles (which scratch) on a background of redness of the skin.

In the most chronic chronic states of chronic eczema, dry skin thickens and forms, so-called hyperkeratotic lesions. The skin being hard and dry, it usually ends up cracking. At this stage, there is not necessarily itching but pain related to sometimes insomniating cracks. Inflammatory growth can aggravate the patient's discomfort.

The symptoms of this disease have aesthetic repercussions that are difficult to live on a daily basis at a professional and personal level. Chronic eczema can lead to a loss of self-confidence, a withdrawal into oneself, to certain depressive behaviors leading to absenteeism or even professional retraining.

In case of chronic eczema affecting the hands or other parts of the body, the opinion of a dermatologist is necessary. He will prescribe treatments and give many practical tips for everyday life.
