Picture of Nummular Eczema
Nummular eczema is a type of skin condition that causes itchy, scaly, coin-shaped areas of irritation on the skin. The lesions occur due to a triggering event like an insect bite or the occurrence of dry skin in the winter. “Nummular” is derived from the Latin word “nummus,” that means small coin.
