It is a type of eczema that includes tiny blisters on the palms and fingers that are itchy and tender.
The cause of dyshidrotic eczema is unknown, and eczema often flares up from under the blue. Dyshidrosis is also called pompholi.
People with a history of atopic eczema and seasonal allergies are more prone to this.
They are probably hypersensitive to something. But, in most cases, doctors and patients do not understand what hypersensitivity is! Allergies to metals such as nickel and cobalt are often involved. However, the exposure is difficult. This can occur from working with metals, simply touching metals or even eating foods grown in high metal content soils. You can see that shutting down the exposure is complicated.
Stress has also been seen as a trigger for respiratory disease.
What are some of the symptoms of dyshydrotic eczema?
- Deep seminal vesicles on the fingers, toes, fingers and soles.
Blisters are collections of fluid in the upper part of the living skin layer called the epidermis. These bubbles are characteristic of this type of eczema; swelling and swelling concentrates in the epidermis and small lakes form cells. Lakes are growing, and this is what you experience as tiny bubbles.
- Itching or burning sensation of the skin before blistering.
Itching and burning are part of the inflammation and immune response that leads to blisters.
- Excessive sweating when you have blisters.
Excessive sweating is a risk factor that can lead to dyshidrotin, because excessive sweating with inflammation leads to eczema, which will lead to more, better and more blisters.
- Pain in the skin in the area of blisters.
Skin cells are stretched by fluid, which creates small blister lakes. Involvement is also involved, and this means that immune cells and immune mediators are present in the skin. The total amount of immune response and fluid collection leads to itching and pain. Blisters can also cause this thick skin to crack. Cracks are called cracks. The skin is hypersensitive to irritation from soap, solvents, weather conditions, and friction when it has this type of injury.
- Peeling skin on hands and feet.
When the vesicles heal, the epidermal layer of the skin must be reformed. This layer grows from below, and the damaged part wakes up like a scale. Dried blisters are hard and therefore there is bark.
How do blisters from dyshidrotic eczema differ from “ordinary” blisters?
Blisters of dyshidrotic eczema are less, very itchy and numerous. A regular blister is similar, except for the fact that you know that you got it from rubbing or rubbing, for example, a badly fitted shoe, and it is usually alone. Flexin-induced blisters hurt and usually do not itch.
Do people with dyshidrotic eczema have outbreaks?
Yes. This type of eczema is capricious. Remission is usually followed by flashes. Each person is distinguished by how strong the outbreak is, how long the remission lasts, and how often it happens. Since we do not know the cause, there seems to be a random nature of dyshidrosis.
How is dyshidrotic eczema diagnosed?
The diagnosis is based on a physical examination of the skin. It also includes the exclusion of other, undulating conditions of the hands and soles, such as allergic contact dermatitis, fungus and id reaction (palm sympathetic / single blisters to a rash that occurs somewhere else).
How is dyshidrotic eczema treated?
Usually we treat this type of eczema with the help of local creams and ointments of cortisone. This medicine is used to treat inflammation. Sometimes systemic cortisones are used in the form of pills or shots. It is important to note that the hands must be protected from irritation during healing. If not, irritating hand eczema will lead to two types of eczema and worsen the symptoms.
Even in the best case, the skin of the hands, suffering from dyschidrotic eczema of the hand, can take up to six months to completely heal. During this time, the skin of the hands should be handled with care and protected from irritation:
- Use only mild cleansers on the skin.
- Moisturizers should be applied after washing and drying with a towel.
- Cleansers and moisturizers must be hypoallergenic and deeply moisturizing.
- Gloves must be worn when performing any manual work that may cause damage to the skin of the hands in contact with caustic and irritating things – think about washing dishes, painting, etc.

Is it possible to prevent the occurrence of outbreaks in the future if you have dyshydrotic eczema?
Only if you find out what caused them (nickel allergy, which you can avoid, much stress you can control, etc.)
