Hello Riyant,


Eczema and Leprosy are both skin diseases but both have different symptoms and causes. Eczema itself is an inflammation of the skin that can cause symptoms such as itching, skin rashes, dryness, bouncy, thickened until the discoloration of the skin. The cause of eczema itself varies from allergic reactions to allergen exposure, or caused by contact with certain substances such as chemicals, irritants, bacterial infections or other causes. Eczema is also not contagious and in some cases can not be cured completely but can be treated by overcoming the symptoms that arise and prevent recurring symptoms by avoiding the cause. Maintain cleanliness of the skin, avoid exposure to triggers, use skin moisturizers, wear comfortable clothes, do not scratch, manage stress and anxiety, and also use drugs such as antihistamines and corticosteroids to treat symptoms or antibiotics if there is a bacterial infection.
