I have some spots on my face and in trying to figure out which of these it is..My friend says it's eczema but my mum says it's ringworm. How do I know the difference?

It is also called atopic dermatitis and it is a condition that causes your skin to become dry, red, itchy and bumpy.

What's that?
Hydrocortisone (steroid) medicine helps control eczema flares. It reduces the inflammation and itch and helps your skin heal faster. You can buy steroid creams over the counter. Stronger versions are available with a prescription.

How can I treat it from home? Any prescriptions?
Treatment depends on severity. The treatment could include avoiding soap and other irritants. Certain creams or ointments may also provide relief from the itching.
