Written by Megan Kinder, with some information gathered from NYTimes.com and other online sources.
According to an article published in the New York Times, those seeking eczema nummular treatment should void triggers that can make your symptoms worse, such as wool, lanolin, and certain foods. Experts do not recommend taking frequent baths - excess bathing and soaps can cause dry skin, which often makes the eczema nummular condition worse.

Venostasis dermatitis is an inflammatory reaction seen in the skin of the lower leg caused by static, slow or delayed venous flow of the leg. Venostasis dermatitis is common in patients 50 years and older. Factors that can contribute to the early onset of venostasis dermatitis include obesity, inactivity, venous injury, dependency (lower than the heart) of the leg and infection of the leg. The primary contributing cause of stasis dermatitis is valvular incompentency of the veins of the leg resulting in chronic swelling. The appearance of venous stasis can range from simple swelling to severe ulcerations. Left untreated, venostasis dermatitis can progress to a venous ulceration. The most common location for a venous ulceration of the lower extremity is over the medial aspect of the ankle. Venous ulcerations vary in size and depth.

Written by Megan Kinder with information gathered information from a "Healthy Living Information" blog as well as several credible message boards to compile this article.

What is a Dermatologist?
A dermatologist is the medical expert you should consult if you have any significant problem with your skin. Dermatology is the science that is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin, hair and nails.
Developing in the lower legs, this common eczema occurs when circulation becomes sluggish. Poor blood flow causes fluids to build up, and the legs swell. Over time, this build up of fluids affects the skin, causing a rash that usually itches, painful sores, as well as thinning and discolored skin. Effective treatment involves treating not only the dermatitis but the circulatory problem as well.
Often appearing after a skin injury, such as a burn, abrasion, or insect bite, the hallmark of this common eczema is unique, coin-shaped (nummular) or oval lesions. One or many patches can develop that may last for weeks or months.
