One of the most important things to do if you have eczema is to not read too much into any of the eczema photos that you see. By that, usually when there are eczema photos, they are pictures of people that have really bad or severe cases of eczema.
One of the main reasons there are eczema photos are so that people can get an idea of all the main different types and severities of eczema that one can get (so that they can be used informatively). In fact, many doctors show their patients different eczema photos is to show them that there are possibilities of their skin getting better; especially if the patients are taking some sort of medication for eczema (usually they will have before and after photos).
When people look at eczema photos they will be able to see that there are several different types of eczema. In fact, they will be able to see how different it is for a baby to have eczema compared to an adult to have eczema; as well as how it looks differently. In eczema photos of babies and children, you will be able to specifically see how eczema is different than the case of an adult; because of the location of the disease. On a baby or child, eczema is most commonly known to be on the facial area (such as the forehead, cheeks, arms, legs, neck and scalp); where as on older people eczema can be found on almost any part of the body-no specific place.
Along with all the different eczema photos, there will also be some sort of information that goes along with it. Very seldom will you see an eczema photo that is alone, without any type of information. In fact, most of the time you will be able to see the best pictures (worst cases) of eczema is when you look at ointments or medications that help treat eczema. Some of the best places to get information as well as being able to view many eczema photos are on the internet or at the doctor’s office.
However, when looking at the photos on the internet you will only be able to read about the medication and not ask any questions as you would if you were at the doctor’s office. Some of the different places that you can look on the internet are on the DermaTech website (they describe what eczema is as well as shows many eczema photos), Epismooth website as well as going to any informative eczema website. The best place to get your questions answered is by going to the doctor; where you can ask them about specific eczema photos and medications.
Whether you are looking at eczema photos or actually have eczema, it is very important that you learn what eczema is and how to deal with it; as you will not want to ignore it. Eczema is a disease that you will want to treat.
