Excessive sweating can lead to increased moisture on the skin, which can worsen eczema symptoms.

This may be due to hormonal differences between the sexes, as well as the fact that women tend to have more sensitive skin. Additionally, certain factors such as stress and allergies can trigger dyshidrotic dermatitis, which may also contribute to its higher prevalence in women.

    Explanation
    Nummular dermatitis is a type of eczema that is characterized by coin-shaped patches of irritated skin. It is more common in males than in females. This condition is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors, such as dry skin, irritants, and allergens. The exact reason why it is more prevalent in males is not fully understood, but it may be related to hormonal differences or variations in immune response.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Eczema can be caused by a combination of genetic predisposition, a stressful lifestyle, and individuals who suffer from asthma or hay fever. Genetic predisposition plays a significant role in determining whether someone is more susceptible to developing eczema. Stressful lifestyles can trigger or worsen eczema symptoms due to the release of stress hormones. People with asthma or hay fever are more likely to develop eczema as these conditions are closely related and share similar underlying immune system dysfunctions. Therefore, all of the mentioned factors can contribute to the development of eczema in an individual.

      Atopic dermatitis

    Correct Answer
    B. Nummular dermatitis
    Explanation
    Nummular dermatitis is a type of eczema that causes round, dry patches of skin to appear during the winter months. This condition is often triggered by dry skin and can be worsened by cold weather. It is characterized by coin-shaped lesions that are itchy and may ooze or crust over. Unlike other types of eczema, nummular dermatitis is not associated with allergies or asthma. Treatment usually involves moisturizing the skin, avoiding irritants, and using topical corticosteroids to reduce inflammation.

    Which of the following type of eczema affects the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and fingers in an individual? 

    • A.

      Seborrheic dermatitis

    • B.

      Neurodermatitis

    • C.

      Nummular dermatitis

    • D.

      Dyshidrotic dermatitis

    Correct Answer
    D. Dyshidrotic dermatitis
    Explanation
    Dyshidrotic dermatitis is the correct answer because it specifically affects the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and fingers in an individual. Seborrheic dermatitis is a type of eczema that primarily affects the scalp, face, and other oily areas of the body. Neurodermatitis is characterized by itchy patches of skin, but it does not specifically target the palms, soles, and fingers. Nummular dermatitis causes coin-shaped patches of irritated skin, but it does not focus on the palms, soles, and fingers like dyshidrotic dermatitis does.
