    It doesn't look like any eczema I’ve ever had. My eczema comes along with little tiny blisters about half the size of a pinhead. Is it warm to the touch? If it is put ice on it and see if it dissipates at all. If it doesn’t I don’t think it’s eczema. There are a few different types of eczema, mine was generally on my hands and feet which is curable with cryotherapy.

    eczema eczema and dermatitis and not the same thing they're completely different.

    eczema looks like a red lumping mas like a rash that you cant stop itching.

    dermatitis are small red or skin colloured lumps filled with liquid.

    what your describing sounds like eczema, tho it sounds more like an allergy he doesn't go away and it was in a matter of minutes or hours it stays there like a red rash.

    dermatitis doesn't go away for months on end.
