Eczema, as we have discussed in our earlier articles, is not at all contagious but it can be in some cases when the skin gets infected and vulnerable. But people often ask us is eczema contagious? This is because of the fact that eczema, of course, gives an unhealthy and disgusting look and people having a phobia for hygiene are the most who ask this question. Actually today people judge a lot. And the judgment has become on the basis of one’s face and appearance. So if a person is having rashes or pus pimples on his body no one will want to sit next to him because of the fact that you don’t want to be unhygienic and the other main reason is that at the back of your mind you think that you can also get eczema because it is contagious.
The fact that eczema is not contagious cannot be changed because of your superstitions however, you must know that eczema can flare up and can worsen your skin condition and then this skin condition that develops can be contagious and viral. So to answer your question to is eczema contagious or not can be given until and unless the skin condition of the person is known. But it is best to save yourself from this condition as it can be very irritating. Not by the feeling of disgust you should give up on the person but just to save yourself and you should talk to the concerned person about the feelings and superstitions or precautionary measures you are thinking of and he will surely understand because he knows how it feels to be rejected and mocked and surely he won’t want anything of this sort to be done to anyone!

Out of all of these eczema types, there are two to three types which are contagious by touch and the rest are harmless to you and your family if anyone near you has it. The other three or two types are contagious if you maintain regular touch contact with that person so you should avoid that touch and not that person as it can worsen his condition.
