    What causes nummular eczema? And how to treat it?

    • 3 min read

    Skin conditions are on the rise, which could be due to lifestyle factors, poor diets, environmental pollutants or other causes. Nummular eczema is one of the widespread skin conditions that unfortunately many people are dealing with.

    What is nummular eczema?

    Nummular eczema is a type of eczema characterised by coin shaped spots on the skin. The spots are usually really itchy, and they can be moist and ooze fluids, or dry and rough.

    Medical science has yet to find the definite cause of this skin disease. There is no firm conclusion as to what causes nummular eczema, but there is some speculation that nummular eczema is a lot more frequent for people that have had allergies, atopic dermatitis, or history with asthma.

    Finding the cause

    If you think that you may have nummular eczema, the best thing you could do for yourself is to book an appointment with your doctor. They will assess your condition and may recommend a skin biopsy to rule out other more serious conditions such as a fungal infection. The downside to nummular eczema is that it is characterised as chronic, which means you may end up with legions for your entire life. Thankfully, there are a number of ways you can manage the condition, including simple lifestyle changes that can improve your condition.

    Choosing the right treatment

    You may find that by making some simple lifestyle changes you are able to better manage your eczema.

    Change your diet

    Diet for one may have a drastic influence on this condition. If you find that you’re eating unhealthy foods most of the time, then change your diet by incorporating more healthy, natural foods, such as fruits and vegetables. Don’t be surprised if the condition recedes completely once you have made this change.

    Be aware of temperature changes

    Nummular eczema is known to be exacerbated by cold, dry weather. If you wash with really hot water, this may worsen the condition as well. So be mindful of the temperature differences that may influence this condition, and treat your skin accordingly.

    Reduce stress

    Stress is yet another important lifestyle factor that may influence nummular eczema. People that are often under stress report a consistent worsening of the condition when they’re under the pangs of stress. So, try to find ways to reduce your stress levels.

    Choose natural soaps

    Harsh chemical based soaps may also cause the lesions to increase and to worsen their condition. When buying soaps try to find some that will be gentle on the skin. Many products state they are suitable for sensitive skin, so be sure to read the labels. When in doubt, ask a friendly staff member to assist you.

    Topical creams

    If lifestyle changes don’t work for you, the doctor can prescribe certain over-the-counter creams to help relieve your itching. Try to favour natural options where possible, such as our C+ cream, as some of the stronger chemical based products may have some side effects.

    In conclusion

    Nummular eczema isn’t a serious disease, but it can be somewhat of a nuisance and even harm the quality of your life, if left untreated. But remember, as we’ve mentioned in the beginning of this article, nummular eczema is a chronic disease that can flare up from time to time. You can live an otherwise healthy life though, and only experience minor nuisance from nummular eczema.
