Dyshidrotic is a type of eczema – a well known skin condition. This particular type of skin condition leaves a rash on the palms, fingers, and soles of the patient. While most forms of eczema affect infants and young children this type is more often found in teenagers and adults. It may be recurrent, acute, or even chronic.

It can quickly become chronic in people because most strains of it are resistant to any type of treatment. Often the rashes can form bubbles and this can be both uncomfortable and painful when walking or using their hands for normal physical activities.

People who suffer from Dyshidrotic eczema will start off with many hours of a burning and itching feeling in their feet, hands, or sometimes both at the same time. During these hours of itching the rash will become worse and spread along the lateral aspect of the finger before moving onto the palms or the soles of the person’s foot.

It is during this time that the person’s soles and palms are both red and dripping with sweat. The rash and bubbles – also known as vesicles – will usually affect the person for up to a month during which time it will spread fast and far to both feet and hands. Physicians report that the vesicles have the appearance of tapioca.

Unfortunately doctors have not yet been able to determine the cause of this skin condition. However, there are certain factors that they believe may be connected to it. The main factors are stress, female intercourse, over exposure to metal salts, or an allergy to contact dermatitis.

Most doctors will try to treat Dyshidrotic eczema with topical steroids that are high in strength and also cold compresses. During the second round of treatment they will use oral steroids or immunosuppressant. Yet, sometimes medicines will not help the condition and there is nothing they can do.
