    Re: Problem with skin on hands

    First suggestion- stop using peroxide because it is causing more harm than good by damaging healthy skin tissue. Turning healthy skin white is a normal reaction because of that damage.

    Use mild soaps and cleansers. Cream, and lotion based ones are best and need not be expensive. Many can be found at the supermarket. Colloidal oatmeal soaps and cleansers are also mild and soothing. Stay away from the well known brand that claims it's so pure as it is one of the harshest soaps on the market with a very alkaline pH.

    Use warm, not hot, water when hand washing. Dry hands thoroughly by patting, not rubbing, and apply a good barrier cream right after. I prefer unscented ones as less irritating and like the heavier greasier types in the winter to seal in moisture and prevent drying. Lanolin, shea butter, beeswax, olive, coconut or fish oils are ingredients I look for. Even simple petroleum jelly works. Some people apply heavy coats at night and wear gloves to help it absorb and keep linens clean.

    Wear rubber gloves when washing dishes or doing harsh cleaning.

    This is all simple common sense stuff. If your condition doesn't improve or worsens, probably best to see your doctor or a dermatologist

    Definitely see a dermatologist. Do you have any other health issues?

    It sounds like possibly dishytrotic eczema....my SIL has it.

    Re: Problem with skin on hands

    Day42- Quincy brings up a good point, I suffered with dyshidrotic eczema for many years as a child and well into my forties particularly during cold weather. One specific feature of that is the painful fluid filled blisters that form on the fingers, palms and sometimes feet. The pain and itching can be intense.

    You didn't mention blisters but if that's part of your symptoms definitely see a dermatologist. The things I mentioned will help but there are meds that may help improve things, though at the time, the Rx'd steroid and urea creams didn't help me much. There are newer meds and treatments. You may also benefit from allergy testing. Intolerance to nickel especially in jewelry is thought to be a factor.
