I developed Eczema when I was really young and treated it really bad. Kept scratching and used medication to cure it. And now since I am older I am really starting to care about my skin now. It's located at the inner part of your arm just on the opposite side of the elbow. It's gone now, but the memories of it are still there. Meaning where it used to be its really dark is there any medication i can be able to lighten it up abit?

I had eczema too as a young child and had the same discoloration in the same place. I can tell you that the shading fades over time and is now completely gone. It has been twenty years (or so), but it didn't take all that time. You see, I cannot tell you how long it took because, frankly, I forgot about it and let life take its course. No one ever mentioned it to me and so it was something that didn't really matter after all. It might seem like a big deal now but try not to focus on it. All the best to you.

Thanks!

I really started to see it start to disappear aswell, but its not noticeable with my arm stretched out but when putting it together like when you flex your arm, it is really noticeable.. It's just something that is holding myself from wearing short sleeves but I guess I will begin to watch it disappear and not tamper with it.

Hey - wear those short sleeves and don't worry about it! If your arms get tanned the discoloration on your inner elbow (which doesn't get as much sun if any ) will be less noticeable.

Hi Mirecka
I'm soo sorry to ask you this, because I don't mean to sound rude. But what skin colour are you?
Because I'm quite dark, and I just wanted to see the likelihood of how long it would take my scars left behind from my eczema to eventually fade away.
Again sorry for the question. I do not mean to impose a rude question, honestly.
