My name is Jane, and I am from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I’m a writer, blogger and a mother of two sweet little girls. I’m also a sufferer of dyshidrotic eczema, which is a skin condition that causes rashes on the hands and feet. But when I say “sufferer,” I’m not complaining. While it’s true that my life has changed because of dyshidrotic eczema, it’s also true that it’s made some things better — more on this in a bit.
In the meantime, if you’re interested to know how dyshidrotic eczema affects daily life (and more importantly, how to make it better), read on!
What Does Dyshidrotic Eczema Look Like?
Dyshidrotic eczema causes itchy blisters on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. It can affect anyone at any age, but it’s most common in women ages 20-40. There may be periods when symptoms get better or worse, but they usually come back over time. The good news is that there are effective treatments available for dyshidrotic eczema. For example:
I get asked a lot, what is dyshidrotic eczema and how did it affect your life? This is such a great question. In this blog post I’m going to share my story of living with dyshidrotic eczema.
I remember the first time I had a flare up. It was during one of the most important times in my life. When I was a college student at the University of Washington, I had an outbreak on my hands.
This condition was so bad that I couldn’t sleep at night because of the itching and pain. My hands were very uncomfortable and they were constantly red, swollen and cracked.
After a month or two my hands were completely healed, but then my feet started to break out as well. This is when I went to see a doctor for the first time.
My doctor told me I had dyshidrotic eczema and that there was no cure for it. He prescribed me some steroids to take orally each day, but after 3 weeks of taking them, nothing happened.
The steroids only made me gain weight, so I stopped taking them altogether. By this time my feet were really bad and I couldn’t wear shoes anymore because they hurt too
I was born with dyshidrotic eczema. DE is a skin condition that causes painful, itchy blisters on the palms of your hands and soles of your feet. I developed blisters on my fingers and toes when I was about 2 years old. The blisters would pop, leaving raw skin that would harden over time. This caused my finger nails to turn inwards (called “pincer nails”) and my toe nails to turn upwards.
In the beginning, I didn’t know any different than having to deal with this condition. But as I got older, it became more difficult to deal with the pain and discomfort of DE. In middle school, after many episodes of bullying due to how my fingers looked and functioned, I started wearing gloves at all times (even in the summer), even while sleeping.
I became so self conscious of how my hands looked that I never wanted anyone to see them (no nail polish, no handshakes, no holding hands). My oldest brother called me “claw hand” or “claws” as a child, because I would play with him by grabbing his arm with both hands and digging my fingernails into his skin. As an
I’ve been suffering from dyshidrotic eczema for about 10 years now. I have been through it all, the lotions, doctor visits, pills and even steroid shots. I have tried many different things including a change in diet, exercise, and overall lifestyle.
The first thing that you should know is that as of right now there is no cure for dyshidrotic eczema. What works for one person might not work for you and vice versa. The only way to find out what works best is to be patient and try different things.
Although there are many treatments available right now, none of them have proved to be 100% effective on everyone. However, just because there is no cure does not mean that there is nothing you can do about it. There are many things that one can do to treat the symptoms which make living with this condition much more bearable.
Dyshidrotic eczema is a skin condition in which small blisters develop on the soles of your feet and/or the palms of your hands. These blisters are usually itchy, but the itching may be mild or severe. The blisters typically last three weeks and then dry up and go away. But new blisters often continue to appear as old ones heal.
Dyshidrotic eczema is also known as pompholyx or vesicular palmoplantar dermatitis, it is a skin condition that is common among people who have already developed atopic dermatitis or who have a family history of atopic dermatitis.
– Small, deep-seated blisters that may itch intensely
– Blisters on the palms of your hands and sides of your fingers
– Blisters on the soles of your feet
The signs and symptoms of dyshidrotic eczema tend to come and go. They include:
– Small, fluid-filled blisters (vesicles) on the edges of the fingers, toes, palms and soles. The vesicles might cause severe itching — a symptom that worsens at night.
– Scaly skin
Dyshidrotic eczema is a type of hand eczema that causes tiny blisters to form on the palms of the hands and sides of the fingers. It may also occur on the soles of the feet. The rash is very itchy. The blisters often come and go, and can last for several weeks at a time.
Dyshidrotic eczema is most common in young adults and women are affected more often than men. There are many conditions that can cause dyshidrotic eczema, including stress, nickel allergy, contact with irritating chemicals, seasonal allergies and prolonged moisture on the hands from frequent hand-washing or working with water.
I have suffered from Dyshidrotic Eczema since I was a teenager. It is a horrible, itchy rash that covers your hands and feet. Not only is it painful but it can also be embarrassing when you have to shake someone’s hand, or put on sandals during the summer.
I have tried all kinds of treatments for the condition and none of them worked very well. The dermatologist had me on a topical steroid, which helped for a while, but then the rash would come back even worse than before. So then I tried antihistamines and anti-itch lotions. They helped some but the rash always came back. Eventually, my doctor suggested I take an oral steroid in addition to the topical steroid and antihistamines. This seemed to work for a while but I was worried about the side effects of being on steroids for so long.
About a month ago a friend of mine told me about these little packets that you can use to make nano silver solution at home. She said that she used it to treat her daughter’s eczema and it worked great! Before I try anything new (especially when it involves drinking something!) I like to do my research first. So I went online and read all about this stuff called colloidal
