Hi,

Eczema is a skin condition and it resolves with appropraite medications. It is non-infectious.

But in some cases, the site of eczema can become secondarily infected - and then the lesion becomes infective.

What is your age? What symptoms are you having? Are you on any medications currently?

Post us if you have any other doubts.

Regards.
