Infected varicose eczema on the lower leg of a 52- year-old man. This condition is caused by poor circulation in the veins and results in darkened patches and dry, scaly skin. The eczema has become infected and is due to either scratching or poor hygiene. The infection can be treated with antibiotics. Eczema is an inflammation of the skin accompanied by itching and blisters, and may be treated with soothing ointments and corticosteroids. For the same leg after treatment with antibiotics, see M150/253.
