Eczema in darker skin types presents in unique ways.

Eczema-related erythema, which presents as redness in lighter skin patients, is more challenging to perceive in the background of darkly pigmented skin. Instead of shades of red and pink, dermatologists might see lesions that appear violaceous, grayish, red-brown or very dark brown and can be confused with other conditions.
