Eczema on HandsI have a form of eczema or dermatitis on my hands and I am having problems identifying why and finding a cure that works.
I have a history of mild asthma, but that is under control. The only meds I am taking are steroids for the asthma.
My health is fine overall.
The one thing I have noticed is that the outbreak of eczema seems to happen when the weather gets hotter and my hands become more clammy. Very small blisters appear under the surface of my skin, particularly between the fingers, but also around the top of the nails too. They are itchy, but not always itchy, and when they advance they become like a red inflammation and it can be painful.
My GP has suggested that I use moisturiser several times, but it seems to me that it only makes the problem worse because my hands become more clammy and subsequently more blisters appear.
I used to get eczema as a child on the insides of my elbows and knees, but that hasn't been a problem for many, many years.
Can you please suggest a remedy?
