While the symptoms may seem similar from age to age, they could vary in severity depending on the person, and could vary in terms of targeted area depending on the age.
When some babies and younger children feel discomfort because of the itching and oozing of the skin, they have trouble falling or staying asleep.
As children grow older and become more physically active, the areas that could manifest eczema may have something to do with their clothing and sweat.
And interestingly, even if you may have had the condition as a child, it could look and feel quite different as an adult. For one thing, the skin becomes more dry and scaly, which can turn into dark or leathery patches.
However, regardless of when a person develops eczema, this condition can be managed in a number of ways. Our article on Making a Lifestyle Change might give you some ideas.
One thing you can do, though — among the tips listed in that article — is to introduce a skincare routine. Mometasone furoate (Elica®) products can help stop itching, reduce redness, ease swelling, and provide relief within 24 hours. Mometasone furoate (Elica®) cream is applied on thin skin (e.g. your face) and moist lesions, while Mometasone furoate (Elica®) ointment is applied on dry lesions and thickened skin.
Now that you know how to spot eczema, it’s time to get the condition managed. With just a few tweaks to your lifestyle, you can enjoy whatever life has in store for you!
If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
