Hand Eczema

Like all forms of eczema, hand eczema – also known as hand dermatitis – causes skin to itch and turn red. Both genetics and exposure to skin irritants play a part in this condition, which affects roughly 10% of the population nationwide.

Typical symptoms of hand eczema include cracked skin, blisters, peeling, flaking, redness, and itching. Hand eczema can cause mental stress and physical discomfort, and a treatment that works for one patient may not work on another.

Treating Hand Eczema
Our strategy is to create customized treatment plans for each individual patient so that we can help you to successfully manage your symptoms and prevent flare-ups as much as possible.

Treating Dyshidrotic Eczema
Also known as pompholyx, this particular type of hand eczema creates small, itchy blisters that appear on the palms of your hands.

Treatment Options
A Good Skincare Routine
Dry skin is the number one enemy for a patient with hand eczema. We will work with you to ensure you have established an effective skin care regimen, including daily bathing and moisturizing. This can have a great impact on deterring flare ups and managing current symptoms.

Prescription Medications
We can prescribe a number of prescription creams, including topical corticosteroids, that are applied directly to the skin to help ease the redness and itching. This is our standard first line of treatment. If we are not happy with the result, we may prescribe oral medication to achieve the same effect, or a combination of both.
