In brief: Can be a challenge
This type of eczema results in "coin-shaped" circles of eczema which is often quite itchy and located on the legs (most common location) the arms or trunk.
Higher potency topical steroids can be helpful, but does take longer to respond than regular eczema. Often, injections of cortisone into the plaques can offer fast relief and clearance. See your doctor or a dermatologist for help.
