hardening, peeling of skin on fingers

I am having a problem with hardening and peeling of the skin on the undersides of my fingers and thumbs. It also gets extremely tight, as if I'm wearing a glove that's too small. My doctor thinks it's eczema, but isn't sure and I haven't yet seen a dermatologist. I've tried everything my doc suggests and all over-the-counter remedies, but nothing works. Does anyone have any idea what this could be???

Re: hardening, peeling of skin on fingers

It could be many things! Only a dermatologist can give you the correct answer. I believe that exzema is also characterized by dry, flakey skin -- not just hardened and 'tight'. Maybe there are some exzema sufferers out there with more information/suggestions for you.
