How can I releive Dyshidrotic Eczema on hands and feet?

I have a mild case, (compared to the pics I see)... of Dyshidrotic Eczema on the palm of my hands mostly and the side of my left foot. It itches and slightly stings. What can I get at a local pharmacy (nonprescript) that will help to get rid of this or at least lessen the itching and mild pain?

I'm 28 and this is the first time I've ever had this.

I had eczema that was bad a few years ago. Now it's not as bad and it comes back every now and then. But that's only when I don't use Goldbond. It works amazingly! Try it, all over not just on hands and feet. It is strong and will keep your skin very soft!  (+ info)

How can I tame my dyshidrotic eczema?

I am down to the last drop of my prescription cream for dyshidrotic eczema and I have found nothing that comes close the cream that can allow me to sleep at night without all the itching. It is cold and dry where I live so I am going crazy. Does anyone know of an over the counter livesaver? plain old lotions like jergens and neutrogena don't help... dermasil even doesn't touch it...I am going to be insane before spring arrives!

I've had eczema since i was about five and i know how you feel! I went through everything from lotions to aveeno and none of them work mine would get so bad that they would burn and itch and i would cry all the time. My doctor told me about elidel and it works! Its amazing. :) Hope that helps!  (+ info)

Has anyone had good luck with any treatment for Dyshidrotic Eczema?

I have it on my feet and hands, but my feet are much worse. I get little liquid filled blisters (don't really know what causes them to form more sometimes than others) and scaling skin. I've tried the steroid creams that the doctor prescribes, but not much has improved. Just wondering if anyone else has this same type of Eczema and if you have found a successful treatment to put this into a remission of sorts? FYI: No one in my family suffers from this, not hereditary.

firstly you have my sympathies. my 10 year old daughter has just been diagnosed with this and is suffering greatly, both from the pain and in the school playground as her hands look so bad.
she has just finished course of strong anti biotics and is using 1% steroid cream but so far it has not helped. in fact the steroid cream has made it worse. i have been using cream designed for burns which does seem to take the itching and soreness away. i am seeing another dermitologist tomorrow so will post again if i find out anything useful, good luck though xx  (+ info)

What is the difference between keratolysis exfoliativa (focal palmar peeling) and dyshidrotic eczema?

When both involve small air-filled blisters that result in peeling of the palms, how can you tell the difference?

Exfoliative keratolysis is a common skin condition in which there is focal peeling of the palms and less often the soles. It is also known as ‘keratolysis exfoliativa’, and ‘focal palmar peeling’. Exfoliative keratolysis is more common during the summer months, and most often affects young adults.


Dyshidrosis, also termed Dyshidrotic Eczema, Pompholyx and Dyshidrotic Dermatitis, is a skin condition that is characterized by small blisters on the hands or feet. It is an acute, chronic, or recurrent dermatosis of the fingers, palms, and soles, characterized by a sudden onset of many deep-seated pruritic, clear vesicles; later, scaling, fissures and lichenification occur.

Non Prescription treatment for Dyshidrotic eczema?

I can't afford to go to a doctor but I have a breakout of Dyshidrotic eczema on the palm of my hands and the bottom of my feet.

Has anyone that has had this tell me of a over the counter treatment?

You could try an over the counter steroid cream. They will be of low potency and may be effective for mild dyshidrotic eczema. If it does not work...see a doctor and try a higher potency steroidal cream.  (+ info)

What is pompholyx/dyshidrotic eczema, what causes it, and what is a cure?

Either/or answers are ok.

Stress which helps causes perspiration can bring on eczema.Eczema can be a red itchy patch of dry scaly skin that can have blisters.Eczema can be treated with topical cortcosteroids,check your diet you maybe allergic to some types of foods which also can aide in the outbreak of a rash.Cortcosteroids are anti-inflammatories;hormone drugs.I cannot find anything under the diagnose that you printed,but I think your having a reaction to a substance;take note to what you eat,and whatever you come in contact with as they can bring symptoms of a rash.Another words keep tract of everything to ease your condition.  (+ info)

Anyone else diagnosed with Dyshidrotic Eczema and how do you cope with an outbreak?

I have had the worst outbreak the last couple weeks. The blisters were so bad on one foot that I have been on crutches to avoid putting pressure on my foot. Besides my one foot, it had spread on my hands, arms, and a little on my ankles. My other foot has only 3 or 4 blisters. I had a shot Friday, it was like a steriod shot, and on steriods for a few days. The cream I have used to keep it from spreading was not working like it should.
Just wondering if anyone has found a way to keep the blisters under control before they spread worse.
Thanks for any help!

The book I am reading, on yeast infestations, indicates that eczema is one skin condition caused by yeast (Candida). Check out the yeast link at www.hufa.org, and start eating plain yogurt.  (+ info)

Does anyone else have dyshidrotic eczema also known as dyshidrosis? I do I was wondering if anyone has a cure?

Dyshidrotic is kind of rare. 20/100,000 people get this condition. I was wondering if anyone else has this condition. I have had this conditon since I was 7 years of age.

Hi, you can try one of the natural treatments for eczema from the Internet – some of them do work. For my eczema I use herbal cream by Champori quite successfully. It takes just a couple of weeks to clear the spots and they stay clear for months on end.
Try it: champori comes with money back guarantee so if it doesn't work for you - it's free.

What can I do to releive the itching from dyshidrotic eczema?

There are many lotions and tablets that may be chosen to alleviate this condition. Oral antihistamines help to alleviate the intense itch (Benadryl). Frequently applied calamine lotion helps to cool the affected skin. Before taking any over-the-counter medicines for this condition, you would be advised to consult your pharmacist, or alternatively, to consult your doctor.
I add a link with details about this condition, and some methods of controlling the itching.


Hope this helps
