Eczema: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Written by Torrey Kim
Updated on November 8, 2021

Below the surface, living with eczema can mean nights of relentless itching, moments of embarrassment, and alternate days when you seem "fine." There's so much more to eczema than meets the eye. Eczema comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders.

Perhaps those who know you are aware that you experience skin rashes. However, MyEczemaTeam members say they often experience such additional symptoms as anxiety, skin infections, intense itching, depression, low self-esteem, pain, skin tenderness, swelling, trouble sleeping, and more.

Check out the iceberg and share your below-the-surface symptoms in the comments below.
