Answered: How to Get Rid of Eczema Scars
Do eczema scars go away? Eczema scarring is a very serious concern that is shared by the millions of people in Canada and the United States who are diagnosed with eczema.
Inflamed patches of skin become extremely itchy, and scratching can lead to damaged skin, and eventually wounds. When wounds often leave eczema scars once they eventually heal.
Eczema scars might make you avoid short sleeves and opt for long sleeves instead. Eczema scars might make you pretend to be sick so you don’t have to go swimming with friends. Eczema scars might be a constant reminder that, unfortunately, you have eczema.
Luckily, we know that lighter eczema scars can go away with the right kind of treatment. There is a chance that some darker, more severe eczema scars are not completely fixable, though they can be lightened and concealed.

How to lighten eczema scars
The first thing you need to know about eczema scars is how they are caused. Eczema scars are for the most part due to the consistent scratching of eczema patches and healing wounds. When patches of eczema are scratched, the skin breaks, wounds may form, and the skin’s recovery is delayed. Over time, these abrasions can turn into scars.
So, as difficult as it may be, the absolute best way to avoid scars is to control your impulses to scratch in the first place. You may have skin that is particularly susceptible to eczema and scarring – there’s not much you can do about that. What you can do is make sure that your patches of eczema stay moisturized and nourished, and that your skin has a real chance to heal.
If you do have some light eczema scars from scratching or from poorly healed wounds, a quality skincare product such as Eczemamedica’s organic eczema relief cream can give your skin everything it needs to recover from damage. Moisturizing and nourishing the skin can allow lighter scars to heal, removing small blemishes and minor eczema scars in time.
How to get rid of dark spots from eczema
Unfortunately, it may be very difficult to completely get rid of dark spots from eczema. Of course, all of this depends on the severity of your eczema and the type of skin you have.
For the most part, dark spots from eczema can be managed with the right kind of treatment, but will likely only turn into lighter scars rather than disappear completely. Here’s what you can do for dark sports from eczema: moisturize, nourish, and protect the skin from future damage. Skincare products that have ingredients with astringent properties (tightens the skin, makes the skin less oily) may be able to help reduce darker eczema scars so that they appear smaller and lighter. Likewise, ingredients with antibacterial and antifungal properties can help protect the skin from future damage and to give it a chance to heal in the meantime. Lastly, nourishing the skin can ensure your body has everything it needs to get rid of pesky eczema scars.
How to get rid of eczema scars
Getting rid of eczema scars depends largely on the severity of your eczema, your skin type, and a host of other factors, including your lifestyle and environment. It may be difficult to completely get rid of some dark eczema scars and skin spots, but there is a lot that you can do to lighten scars and heal some of the smaller blemishes that come from eczema.
Here are a few steps you can take to get rid of eczema scars:
- Moisturize: your skin will never heal if it’s dry. But it’s not only important to get moisture into your body; it’s also important to keep that moisture there. Quality skincare products are designed with ingredients that provide your skin with moisture as well as sealing moisture in by applying a thin protective layer over your skin.
- Nourish: your skin will never heal if it’s lacking nutrients. Unhealthy skin will continue to give you problems until you give it what it needs. Use a natural skincare product that moisturizes and nourishes your damaged skin to accelerate recovery.
- Protect: your skin will never heal if it is constantly under attack. Protecting your skin from future damage is vital if you want it to recover from current damage. Once your skin is protected, the healing ingredients will be able to do their work on your damaged skin, removing and lightening eczema scars.
