Symptoms of Nummular dermatitis

Some early signs of nummular dermatitis include the onset of tiny, reddish spots and blister-like sores on the skin. These sores occur in groups and subsequently enlarge, growing close together to become distinct coin-shaped patches.

The sizes and look of these patches are varied. They could be:

  • Less than an inch in size, or larger than 4 inches;
  • Occur often on the legs, but could also appear in the middle of the body, including the belly, or arms, hands, and feet.
  • Could be pink, red, or brown, and prominent on the skin
  • Itchy and have a burning feeling, especially at night
  • Become crusty after fluids leak from the blisters
  • Become scaly.
  • Clear skin between patches, but it can be dry and easily irritated. In chance cases of a Staphylococcus aureus (staph) infection on the site of the patches, a yellowish crust could develop. An antibiotic could be required to kill the infecting bacteria.

Make an appointment to visit Clear Skin London and meet with our experienced dermatologists London if you suspect the appearance of these patches.

Who can get Nummular-dermatitis?

If you are a man of above 55 years of age, then you could be likely to get the skin problem. Outbreaks among men tend to be more common and occur between 55 and 65 years of age. Women are less likely to develop the problem, and when they do, they tend to be in their teens or be young adults, usually between the ages of 15 and 25 years.

OUR PATIENTS REVIEW

Quotes

ReviewsI was suffering from terrible allergies. Over the counter medications didn't help much and life was going from bad to worse. I started spending more time browsing the web for a solution. Then, a colleague recommended me the Clear skin Clinic. I went for the first consultation without much expectation. But the moment I arrived, all my worries were put to rest. I underwent the pinprick allergy testing to learn that I was allergic to dust mites. Since then, I bought cleaning products and vacuums as suggested by these people and that helped. I suffer seldom now, thanks to Clear skin Clinic.

ReviewsMy eczema had been a constant problem since I was young and I had treatment of different sorts with mixed results. It was a colleague who suggested that I go to Clear Skin Clinic and see if they could help. I was so impressed by the staff at the clinic all of whom were kind and efficient. I have started treatment now and my skin is looking so much better.
