Dyshidrotic eczema is a condition where the higher proportion of people affected are women, but can affect people of both sexes.

The main symptoms that will be displayed by the sufferer of dyshidrotic eczema are the appearance of blisters on the hands, the fingers and the soles of the feet. One will frequently find that dyshidrotic eczema will have been preceded by the more traditional forms of eczema, and that the blisters will form in areas where the other eczema has already affected.

Dyshidrotic eczema is a condition which frequently appears suddenly and without warning, and will generally show as clear blisters for the first few days. As the condition progresses, the blisters are likely to worsen. These blisters are often accompanied by the thickening, scaling of the affected area. These areas in particularly get painful as dyshidrotic eczema gets worse.

Just like the other types of eczema, the cause of dyshidrotic eczema is not yet known. But there are many man-made substances which have been found out to contribute to the development of the disease. These may include fragrances, oral contraceptives, aspirin, smoking, as well as having contact with certain metals, including nickel, chromium, and cobalt. When a case of this particular form of eczema occurs, searching for the triggers and any contact with them is often a good place to start.

You may also find that there are natural substances which can trigger or aggravate the condition, and these can include citrus fruits, soaps, and even fungal infection. Dyshidrotic eczema can frequently be found to affect those people who have frequent contact with harsh detergents or soaps, and those who through the nature of their work, have contact with turpentine and paint remover.

The first thing that you should do if you think that you may be suffering from this condition is to refer to your dermatologist. Depending on how pronounced and clear the symptoms show, they may be able to simply look at the area and diagnose the condition, or at other times, they may need to look at taking a skin sample in order to be able to specify the condition, which they can then use to prescribe treatment.

The typical courses of treatment for dyshidrotic eczema can include corticosteroids and ointments. Depending on the severity of the condition, the type of corticosteroids can be delivered either orally or as a topical cream. The itching that accompanies dyshidrotic eczema can often be reduced by the use of oral antihistamines.

Dyshydrotic eczema is a particularly nasty form of eczema, and if you do think that you are suffering with it, it is strongly advised that you refer to a medical professional or try an all natural treatment so the right course of treatment can be instituted.
