Eczema Papulosum. (Papular Variety)

Categories: Diseases of The Skin

This is characterized by flat or
sharp pointed reddish pimples (papules), varying in size from a small to a

large pin-head. They are usually numerous, run or crowd together and form

large patches. The itching is usually very intense. This causes much

scratching, rawness and crusts. The pimples may continue as such, or

change into vesicles. In chronic cases they run together, and finally form

thick scaly patches, and may run into a scaly eczema.
