Skin lesions are dry, red, or itchy patches on your skin. Often referred to as Eczema or atopic dermatitis, is a skin condition typically found in children but can continue into adulthood. Eczema can show up in your elbow creases, knee, wrists, scalp, neck, cheeks, and many other areas of your body including the legs.
Eczema on darker-skinned people can cause skin discolouration, making the affected area lighter or darker than the surrounding skin. While there is no cure for skin lesions, symptoms can be managed. For many people, eczema can also go away over time.
Common conditions that can cause skin lesions include:
- Eczema can be linked to allergies and asthma and is suspected to be an overactive immune response to an irritant.
- Cold sores
- Actinic keratosis
- Allergic eczema
- Contact dermatitis can appear hours to days after contact with an allergen
