People that are fortunate enough will have clear, supple skin that they can be proud of. This is often helped with hygiene and general care, while the condition of our skin is also often affected by certain medical conditions.
One such condition that can affect our skin is discoid eczema. We don’t know the exact causes of discoid eczema, but it is often associated with infections from the Staphylococcus aureus bacterium.
The condition can be very uncomfortable for patients, and it can also be quite unsightly, potentially leading to issues with the patient’s self-esteem. Here are a few of the signs that you might be suffering from this condition.
Symptom #1: Oval Patches
Rashes and other skin imperfections are often quite distinct in appearance, and this helps medical professionals to find out just what the cause is. Sometimes it is the shape, color, or texture of abnormalities that are tell-tale signs, and it is the shape that gives a strong clue where discoid eczema is concerned.
Patients with discoid eczema will find that they develop patches of eczema on the skin that are circular or oval in shape. They can be found on just about any part of the body, but it is unlikely they will appear on the scalp or on the face.
