Sample text

This is thought to be a more persistent form of the disease and carries a poorer prognosis. The lesions appear as red scaly areas (Figures 37 and 42), or crusting and weeping ones in the acute stages and thickened (lichenified) skin, particularly on the limbs, in the chronic phase (Figures 44 and 45). The lichenified patches are red or sometimes pale. The surface may be scaly and there is increased linearity of the skin surface markings. Excoriations (Figures 39, 44 and 45) are common and secondary infection, as seen in infants, may also occur (Figure 46).

This is usually due to Staphylococcus aureus but -hemolytic streptococcal infections may also occur. In infection with S. aureus, the lesions often develop golden crusts and/or weeping (Figure 35). It may be difficult to distinguish between acute weeping eczema (not infected) and secondarily infected eczema (Figure 36). Pustules are occasionally seen, making the diagnosis of secondary infection easier (Figure 36). In secondary infection with streptococci, erythema and edema of the skin surrounding the eczematous lesions are present.

Altered pigmentation Inflammation in the skin may either stimulate or suppress melanocyte function. Thus, the skin at the sites of the eczema may either become darker (Figures 59 and 60) or paler (Figures 61 and 62).
