Pale skin or dark. What does your eczema look like? Eczema can make the skin itchy and inflamed whatever the skin tone, but it tends to redden lighter skin or make darker skin purple, grey or ashen. Its appearance can also vary according to how severe it is or which part of the body is affected.
An Atopic Dermatitis Visual Guide, funded in part by an educational grant from Sanofi and Regeneron, as well as the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. can help you identify your eczema by skin tone and body part. Simply slide the skin tone scale to the colour nearest your own, click on the body part and a host of images shows you how the condition may appear on your own skin.
