MedicineNet, Healthline and WebMD feature pictures of facial eczema on their official websites. Eczema symptoms include red patches of skin, skin inflammation and irritation, intense itching, small bumps, and scaly skin, according to Healthline. The disease is not contagious and tends to lessen in severity with age.
As of 2015, there is no cure for eczema, notes Healthline. Treatment options include over-the-counter oral antihistamine medications to alleviate itching, cortisone creams and, in severe cases, prescription oral corticosteroids. Phototherapy treatments can also help. Alternative treatments that may reduce eczema symptoms include meditation, acupuncture and aromatherapy. Triggers that can cause eczema flare-ups include stress, upper respiratory infections, animal dander, food allergies and temperature changes.
