How is discoid eczema diagnosed? In most cases, the appearance of discoid eczema is quite characteristic. Bacterial swabs may reveal Staphylococcus aureus colonisation or infection. Scrapings are commonly taken for mycology , as discoid eczema can look very similar to tinea corporis ringworm infection.

Patch testing is sometimes arranged to see whether there could be a contact allergy responsible for dermatitis. In most cases, no specific allergy can be found. What is the treatment of discoid eczema? As discoid eczema is associated with loss of skin barrier function, it is important to: Protect the skin from injury. As this type of dermatitis often starts off as minor skin injuries, protect all your skin carefully.

If the hands are affected, use gloves and tools to make sure the skin is not irritated by friction, detergents, solvents, other chemicals or excessive water. Apply emollients frequently Emollients include bath oils, soap substitutes and moisturising creams. They can be applied to dermatitis as frequently as required to relieve itching, scaling and dryness.

Emollients should also be used on the unaffected skin to reduce dryness. It may be necessary to try several different products to find one that suits. Anti-inflammatory treatments include: Topical steroids Topical steroids are anti-inflammatory creams or ointments available on prescription which may clear dermatitis and reduce irritation. The stronger products are applied to the patches just once or twice daily for 2—4 weeks. They are repeated from time to time.

Mild ones such as hydrocortisone are safe for daily use if necessary. Antibiotics Antibiotics most often flucloxacillin are often prescribed if the dermatitis is blistered, sticky or crusted. Sometimes discoid eczema clears completely on oral antibiotics, only to recur when they are discontinued. Other treatments sometimes prescribed for severe discoid eczema include: Oral antihistamines Antihistamine pills may reduce the itching in some patients with discoid eczema.

They do not clear up the rash. Ultraviolet radiation UV treatment Phototherapy several times weekly for 6—12 weeks can reduce the extent and severity of discoid eczema. Steroid injections Intralesional steroids are sometimes injected into one or two particularly stubborn areas of discoid eczema. This treatment is unsuitable for multiple lesions. Oral steroids Systemic steroids are reserved for severe and extensive cases of discoid eczema.

They are usually prescribed for a few weeks while continuing steroid creams and emollients on residual dermatitis. Other oral treatments Persistent and troublesome discoid eczema is occasionally treated with methotrexate , azathioprine or ciclosporin.

These medicines have important risks and side effects and require careful monitoring by a specialist dermatologist. Discoid eczema can usually be controlled with the above measures, although it has a tendency to recur when the treatment has been stopped.
