New eczema symptoms - burning


I'm wondering if anyone might be experiencing similar symptoms to me. I am 42, lifelong eczema sufferer. My eczema is usually characterised by broken skin, deep cuts and itchiness.

However, I am on my third bout of something different now. I don't have any broken skin - my last flare up cleared up well. The area around where I normally get eczema (on my hands) is suddenly bright red, with a rash, very painful to touch, burning. I haven't used anything new.

Any ideas? It's killing me! The top layer of skin is brown and shiny in places too.

Re: New eczema symptoms - burning

Sorry to hear that and it does sound serious. It could be quite a few different conditions/complications from lifelong eczema.. hope you can get a dermatologist appointment soon. If you start to feel feverish or muscle weakness, may even want to go emergency. Hope you get some relief soon, take care.
