Eczema is a group of conditions that make the skin dry, itchy, and inflamed. Kids with melanin rich skin are almost 2x more likely to experience eczema. On black skin, eczema can cause darker brown, purple, or gray patches. The affected areas may be swollen, warm, itchy, and dry or scaly.
Eczema can appear anywhere on the body, but black people are more prone to developing small bumps on the torso, arms, and legs.
