    Why are my hands peeling constantly...eczema, CD or just dry hands?

    For the last few weeks my hands have been peeling constantly. They are usually worse after I take a shower or wash my hands. It's kind of like how your back would peel after a sunburn, but it's my hands and I am not sunburn. It started off in between my fingers, then it went away. Then it my palms started to peel, then it went away. Not the top of my hands are peeling, but it just won't go away. I have tried hydrocortisone, Vitamin A & D and just plain lotion. It has been peeling so much that there is some doscoloration in the areas that have peeled. Could this be eczema, contact dermatitis or just dry hands? Will this be chronic or will this go away?

    I have the exact same thing. I have never had it before. [B]{Removed}[/B] They are circular on my palms and not circular on the skin on the top of my fingers near my nails.
