How do you know if you have eczema?

ANSWER

It can be hard to tell for sure if you have eczema. You’ll want to see a dermatologist or other doctor to find out.

At your appointment, your doctor will check your skin and talk with you about your symptoms, your health history in general, and any rashes or allergies that run in your family.

Based on that information, she'll decide if it’s eczema or something else.
