Dyshidrotic Eczema Treatment
Dyshidrotic EczemaUp until fairly recently, dyshidrotic eczema was simply considered a regular form of atopical eczema.The word pompholyx is derived from the Greek word cheiropompholyx, which means "hand and bubble". Dyshidrotic Eczema is a very itchy form of Eczema with lots of fluid filled blisters, which usually appear on the sides of the fingers or feet. At first the blisters appear as tiny beads that can soon join to form a rash the size of a fingernail. These blisters can later on start oozing or weeping. While this condition is not contagious to others, recurrence is common and for many can be chronic. Incidence/Prevalence in the USA is 20/100,000. However, more recently it has been diagnosed as a separate type of eczema, one which primarily affects the hands and feet of those who suffer with it. It can be difficult to treat and there is a high incidence of it returning fairly frequently. Dyshidrotic eczema treatment is similar to other eczema treatments however due to the nature of the eczema it can sometimes be more difficult to keep in check.

Basically, dyshidrotic eczema treatment is two phased. Firstly, treatment focuses on treating the actual eczema and trying to find out what causes or triggers it. The triggers can be very different from person to person which is why it is important to try to understand what causes it to re-surface. It is a very distressing disease for those who suffer with it especially because of the damage it can do to hands and nails. The eczema itself causes small yet deep blisters to form on the hands and feet. These blisters are extremely itchy and when scratched they tend to either become infected or to
cause the surrounding skin to crack which is very painful.

Applying a topical steroid cream can be beneficial however long-term use of these types of creams cause the skin to thin. Thus usually several other Dyshidrotic eczema treatment plans are also recommended. While one Dyshidrotic eczema treatment may work for a while, patients often find that they have to vary the treatments and switch to different treatments from time to time. This holds true for medicated creams that are used and for home treatments of eczema as well. Alternating treatments tend to help the eczema heal faster and reappear less frequently.

Some of the Dyshidrotic eczema treatment recommended uses items that are readily available in the home or can be bought at local stores. For example soaking the hands or feet in a salt bath for 30 to 40 minutes is said to help. Apply vinegar to affected areas will also alleviate some of the itching. Cleaning hands or feet with a baking soda paste is also a very effective Dyshidrotic eczema treatment. Some people have found that spreading a zinc oxide ointment on their skin is also a helpful Dyshidrotic eczema treatment.

If the skin happens to crack; something that is fairly likely to happen if the eczema is not caught and treated soon enough, extra care needs to be taken. Natural moisturizers such as pure olive or coconut oil help. You may find that Aloe Vera gel is also a great and soothing Dyshidrotic eczema treatment. It is important to properly emolliate the skin in order to help restore it back to full health. Once the skin is healthy again care must be taken to ensure that it stays as free from eczema as possible. The best way to do this is to keep the skin well moisturized and to apply medical cream at the first sign of any eczema coming back again.
