Dyshidrosis on Hands Pictures - 54 Photos & Images
Dyshidrotic eczema, also known as dyshidrosis or pompholyx, is a type of eczema that causes a blistering rash on the hands or feet, especially the fingers, palms, and soles. The blisters are small and often very itchy. Dyshidrotic eczema is the third most common dermatitis, or inflammation, of the hands. It's twice as common in women as men. About half of those who suffer from dyshidrotic eczema also have atopic dermatitis, a common form of eczema. Dyshidrotic eczema is also a side effect of intravenous immunoglobulin infusions (IVIG), which are typically used to treat certain immune system diseases.
The characteristic blisters of this condition are:
Small, similar to grains of tapioca
Filled with clear fluid
In clusters between your fingers and toes or on the edges of your fingers, toes, palms, or soles
Very itchy and sometimes painful
The blisters usually dry and peel in about three weeks. The skin beneath them may be scaly, red, cracked, and painful.
