Dyshidrotic eczema is characterized by the sudden onset (1-3 days) of deep-seated, clear blisters on the hands specifically on the palms and/or sides of fingers and/or on the feet on the soles and/or sides of the toes. The blisters are often accompanied or precluded by a burning feeling or itching. In the later stages, there is more peeling, cracking, or crusting of the skin along with scaling, thickening, and painful fissuring typically occurring. With long-standing disease, some sufferers' fingernails may reveal dystrophic changes (e.g. irregular transverse ridging, pitting, thickening, discoloration). Occasionally secondary infection involving staphylococcus bacteria may occur during a flare up, resulting in pain, redness, swelling, and crusting or pustules.
