Have I got Eczema?
« on: Saturday February 03, 2007, 08:09:48 PM »
I have sufferd with acne on and off since the age of 14, im now 23 :'(!  If this wasnt bad enough I have developed another skin problem!  In the creases of my forehead and the creases of the side of my nose I have started getting a red scaley rash, lots of little red tiny dots close together, its not acne.  Im guessing its eczema.  Thing is ive never ever had this before in my life, its only started in the last 6months.  I thought eczema was something you were born with? (Excuse my ignorance, I know nothing about eczema as Ive never had it before)

possible fungal or bacterial infection. If so its treatable but you need a proper diagnosis and prescription

No, you can develop *E at any time, I'm afraid.  Often people are born with it, but I wasn't diagnosed until I was in my 50s.
