  • Dyshidrosis

    Dyshidrosis, also known as dyshidrotic eczema or pompholyx, is an uncommon skin condition in which very small, fluid-filled blisters appear on the palms of your hands and the sides of your fingers. The soles of your feet also can be affected. The blisters that occur in dyshidrosis generally last around three weeks and cause intense itching. Once the blisters of dyshidrosis dry, your skin may appear scaly. The blisters typically recur, sometimes before your skin heals completely from the previous blisters.

    The blisters associated with dyshidrosis occur most commonly on the sides of the fingers and the palms, although the soles of the feet also can be affected. The blisters are usually small about the width of a standard pencil lead and typically appear in clusters. In more-severe cases, the small blisters may merge together to form larger blisters. Skin affected by dyshidrosis can be very itchy or even painful.

  • Dyshidrosis

    In most cases, doctor can diagnose dyshidrosis based on a physical exam. No lab test can specifically confirm a diagnosis of dyshidrosis, but doctor may suggest tests to rule out other skin problems that have similar symptoms. Depending on the severity of your signs and symptoms, treatment options may include: High-potency corticosteroid creams and ointments can help speed the disappearance of the blisters. If other treatments aren't effective, doctor may recommend a special kind of light therapy that combines exposure to ultraviolet light with drugs that help make your skin more receptive to the effects of this type of light. Medications such as tacrolimus (Protopic) and pimecrolimus (Elidel) may be helpful for people who want to limit their exposure to steroids.

The male-to-female ratio for dyshidrotic eczema has variably been reported as 1:1 and 1:2. affects individuals aged 4-76 years; the mean age is 38 years. The peak incidence of the condition occurs in patients aged 20-40 years. After middle age, the frequency of dyshidrotic eczema episodes tends to decrease.
