Skin Care and Diseases
I had exzema and it was very itchy, flacky rash that ozzed a yellow fluid. But I have a rash that goes around my ankle. It is very dry like the eczema but it don`t have the itchy flaky rash. Can eczema rash not be itchy?
Sometimes simply dry skin is one of the manifestations of eczema. Use bland moisturizers as often as needed to keep the skin moist. Avoid hot baths/showers. Keep the bath/shower temperature lukewarm. Avoid prolonged soaking, too.
