Eczema and scars

Eczema is often very itchy and can sometimes become infected. Scratching and rubbing the skin for long periods of time along with skin infections can cause scars and discolourations of the skin. Most importantly, get the eczema under control by visiting a dermatologist. Make sure to use sunscreen to prevent further pigmentation, and then speak with your dermatologist about various fading creams to fade the marks.
