Bacteria-infected eczema rash. View of a child's legs, showing an eczema rash which has become infected with Streptococcus sp. bacteria. The bacterial infection has produced yellow pustules. Eczema is a superficial inflammation of the skin, mainly affecting the epidermis. It causes itching and a red rash, often accompanied by small blisters which weep and become crusted. Subsequent scaling, thickening or discolouration of the skin may occur. The term eczema normally describes an inflammation of the skin that arises without any obvious external causes (also referred to as endogenous or constitutional eczema).
