Caption: Eczema on thumb. Close-up of eczema on a child's thumb, caused by thumb-sucking. The skin is inflamed, scaly and cracked, and the cracks are bleeding. Eczema is an itchy skin inflammation that in severe cases leads to small blisters that weep and become crusted. It sometimes results from an allergy, but often the cause is unknown. The itchiness provokes scratching, which aggravates the condition. Treatment usually consists of a soothing ointment and dressing. Severe cases may require anti-inflammatory drugs and antibiotics if the rash becomes infected.
