I've had eczema for pretty much my whole life, but as of about three weeks ago these started appearing on my arms (see images attached - sorry if it's a bit hard to see!). They are small raised bumps, mostly skin-coloured but some a little bit pink. They are slightly itchy sometimes (although I've learned to ignore it). There's a few of them on my hands too. However, they don't appear anywhere else. It looks completely different to any eczema on the rest of my body. Please help me?

    Hi Jonathan, I think I know what you are talking about but I have forgotten what it is called - very helpful!  Are you under a Dermatologist for your Eczema if so, you should ask him/her.

    Otherwise, apart from asking your GP, you could look at DermNet NZ

      Haha that's alright. I'm not seeing any dermatologist at the moment - do you think this skin condition is severe enough to necessitate seeing a dermatologist?

      Originally, it was a GP who named my rash and I don't think it warrants a trip to a dermatologist but maybe your GP can prescribe something for you.  Of course, your GP will be able to see it 'in the flesh', so might prefer to refer you.

    Hi Jonathan,

    Seek your dermatologist's opinion before taking any action to treat this.

    But in the mean time, you can use virgin coconut iol to ease the itchiness; might be useful.
