Do I Have Eczema or Ringworm
Do I have eczema or ringwormé Both cause red, itchy skin. But ringworm causesround or oval rashes with raised edges and a flat center that may or may not have scaling,whereas eczema can comeround patches or irregular ones. I know they look the same. I want to knowhow to know what I have. Ringworm tends to have the raised outer edge,whereas eczema tends to be equally rough all over the broken out area. Ringworm as it spreadstends to clearthe center, whereas eczema doesn't.
So it is probably ringworm if it looks betteron the inside than the edge. Ringworm can be spread by rubbing the affectedarea with a towel and then somewhere else, or picking it up by rubbing against an infectedperson or animal. You know it is ringworm if you had it on one arm and now have it otherplaces. Eczema can affect both hands or both arms. Yeah, but it won't spread like a bad rash. Actually, ring worm is a bad rash. Ringworm is a fungal infection. Eczema isan autoimmune condition, so eczema does not
spread, though ringworm can. How do I tell the differenceé Short of a medical testé HyoCortisone willhelp reduce eczema itch, whereas they will worsen ringworm rashes. I do not have any on hand to try. Eczema improves if you use alcoholfree moisturizers,whereas that won't make much difference with ringworm. How can I get rid of ité
Ringworm clears up after a week or so of antifungalmediion taken orally or on the skin, whereas eczema won't react to that treatment. Does athlete's foot treatments kill ité There are over the counter antifungal medicinesto treat it, yes, whereas over the counter stuff aside from hyocortisone is not availablefor eczema. How do you prevent ité Eczema is triggered by allergies or stress,but you cannot give it to someone else, and you cannot spread it across the body. Your might give you something to reduce
the breakouts. I heard wool clothing, excessive bathing,harsh soaps and contact dermatitis make it worse. Yeah, and the new definition of a bad dayis getting ringworm and poison ivy at the same time. Eczema is most commonmiddleaged men, ringwormchilen, so you know you're more likely to get eczema as youget older. You can get both at any age. True, but keeping kids with rashes away fromyours reduces the risk of your kid getting
ringworm, plus a whole lot of other things.Saying grandpa cannot hold him because he has eczema, makes no difference except tomake both boys cry.
