Varicose Eczema is not a dermatological or skin condition and it should not be treated by dermatologists or with creams. In fact steroid creams only mask the condition which can continue to deteriorate to the point of causing a leg ulcer. The underlying problem is superficial vein reflux and this should be treated by a vein specialist (phlebologist).
Early Treatment gives better results and reduces the risks of complications. If caught early, varicose eczema can be cured. However if varicose eczema is neglected, the skin may be damaged beyond repair and may not recover.
