In brief: Coin-like rash
"nummular" means discoid or coin-like.
Nummular eczema is a descriptive term, coin-like dermatitis. It generally is a reaction to an underlying problem, most commonly dry skin. Moisturizing is the most helpful, though sometimes your doctor will prescribe a topical steroid if inflammation is severe.
