Dr. Karen Han answered:

Will eczema patches leave scars?

Not usually

Wrist_pain
Inflammation from eczema tends to be superficial. If it's not infected and if you don't scratch it too rigorously, the patches in general heal without scarring. However, if it is not in good control, chronic rigorous scratching can result in permanent discoloration typically seen in people with darker complexion. For this reason,routine moisturizing and controlling the itch are both important.

Is it normal for eczema patches to develope hard, firm nodules?

Prurigo Nodule

Nodule
Nodular prurigo can occur at all ages but mainly in adults aged 20-60 years. Both sexes are equally affected. The individual prurigo nodule is a firm lump, 1-3 cm in diameter, often with a raised warty surface. The early lesion may start as a smaller red itchy bump. Crusting and scaling may cover recently scratched lesions. Older lesions may be darker or paler than surrounding skin.

What will happen if you squeeze patches on your skin from eczema?

Can make worse

Itch
Squeezing or scratching/rubbing the skin can cause the eczema to worsen and also cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation or discolorations and scarring. Instead of squeezing, apply topical steroids or creams intended to distract the skin from itching (contain lidocaine, camphor, menthol) and take antihistamines.

Dr. Karen Han answered:

Are there any products I should avoid while I have eczema patches on my hands?

Avoid allergens

Hand
Keeping your skin moist with bland lotions or ointments is essential. Common avoidable topical allergens include fragrances (organic or not), cocamidopropyl betaine (often in wipes and hand sanitizers), Kathon, propylene glycol, and Disperse Blue. Petrolatum jelly is probably the least allergenic and most effective moisturizer for hand eczema.

Dr. Otto J. Placik answered:

What are ways to treat old acne scars and dark patches caused by eczema and the use of cortizone?

Scar revision

Open-uri20121118-6913-igzefv
Scar revision may require various combinations of chemical peel, microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, scar excision, grafting, fillers, skin bleaching, etc. Dark patches are generally not caused by cortizone, Atrophy is more likely.
