The most common symptom of eczema is itch. Research shows more than 85% of people with eczema experience itch every day. For many people, the itch can range from mild to moderate. Up to 30% of people rate sleep disturbance as their most or second most burdensome symptom.
Eczema and its symptoms are different for everyone.
Here’s what to look for:
- Dry, sensitive skin
- Inflamed, discolored skin
- Rough, leathery, or scaly patches of skin
- Oozing or crusting
You may have all or just a few of these symptoms. There may be times your symptoms go away, and other times when you have flare-ups. The best way to find out if you have eczema is to consult with a healthcare professional.
