Eczema hands

Eczema hands (normally dry eczema) is a type of skin inflammation. Eczema hands are particularly common in industries involving cleaning, catering, metalwork, hairdressing, healthcare and mechanical work. Dry eczema may become a major problem if effective treatment is not sort.

The key symptom is an itchy, lumpy rash. In more acute cases, the eczema hands become red and swollen. Small blisters may develop just under the skin. These areas of inflammation are scattered over the fingers and the palm but can also affect other parts of the hands. The fingers may become quite swollen. Because of the itching, the area becomes badly chapped. If the eczema hands become very bad, they can become very painful and it may be difficult to perform normal daily tasks particularly when working with small items.

As the condition persists, some blisters may still be present. However, the skin becomes generally dry, scaly, and thickened. Over the finger joints, splits and cracks may develop which are very painful. Eventually, there are no blisters at all. The skin then appears very thick, dry and scaly

Eczema hands can often be exacerbated by the irritants that you come into contact with on a daily basis.

With careful management, eczema hands usually recover completely. A few days off work is often helpful. When eczema hands becomes severe, it may not be possible to work for weeks or months. Occasionally a change of occupation is necessary.
