Dyshidrosis is a skin condition that is characterized by small blisters on the hands or feet. This last term comes from the Ancient Greek word for “bubble.” That’s what the condition’s characteristically small … I managed to get it under control (after a lot of suffering) and it seemed I was completely free of it. Severe dyshidrotic eczema may also cause a blistering rash. The last time I had this, it was HFMD (hand foot mouth disease). I have very bad reactions to the steroid creams so my doctors prescribed prednisone (on-and-off for 18 months), and an immunosuppressant (Cyclosporine) for four months. I don't think I slept for close to a month due to the Prednisone and the stomach cramps from the mycophenolate were miserable. HHS A great glove option are these Remedywear™ KIDS gloves for eczema in TENCEL and soothing zinc or try the adult gloves. I wish it was better known that changing your diet can work wonders for many health conditions normally not associated with a modern-type diet (i.e., high in sugars and wheats). People must have suffered from dyshidrotic eczema in the days before heavy meds and steroid creams. I would scratch without thinking, and within two weeks, the spots had spread until they were weeping and raw all of the time. ._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR{fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)}._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR._3axV0unm-cpsxoKWYwKh2x{fill:#ea0027} ... Dyshidrotic eczema and pompholyx are rare variants of dermatitis characterized by vesicles or bullae on the palms, soles and sides of the fingers. I started taking 60mg of Prednisone a day. Dyshidrotic eczema often comes and goes, with episodes more common in warm weather. It was a constant cycle, at least one outbreak on a hand or foot all the time. I am still doing the 5mg of Prednisone every other day, and when my bottle runs out in two weeks, I will be off of it completely. The major aetiologies to be considered are atopic DE, contact DE, systemic contact DE and DE due to fungal or microbial allergy. Kaynak: reddit.com. Dyshidrotic Eczema, also known as Dyshidrotic or pompholyx is a skin condition wherein fluid-filled blisters may appear on your body parts. ._9ZuQyDXhFth1qKJF4KNm8{padding:12px 12px 40px}._2iNJX36LR2tMHx_unzEkVM,._1JmnMJclrTwTPpAip5U_Hm{font-size:16px;font-weight:500;line-height:20px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText);margin-bottom:40px;padding-top:4px}._306gA2lxjCHX44ssikUp3O{margin-bottom:32px}._1Omf6afKRpv3RKNCWjIyJ4{font-size:18px;font-weight:500;line-height:22px;border-bottom:2px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-line);color:var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText);margin-bottom:8px;padding-bottom:8px}._2Ss7VGMX-UPKt9NhFRtgTz{margin-bottom:24px}._3vWu4F9B4X4Yc-Gm86-FMP{border-bottom:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-line);margin-bottom:8px;padding-bottom:2px}._3vWu4F9B4X4Yc-Gm86-FMP:last-of-type{border-bottom-width:0}._2qAEe8HGjtHsuKsHqNCa9u{font-size:14px;font-weight:500;line-height:18px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText);padding-bottom:8px;padding-top:8px}.c5RWd-O3CYE-XSLdTyjtI{padding:8px 0}._3whORKuQps-WQpSceAyHuF{font-size:12px;font-weight:400;line-height:16px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon);margin-bottom:8px}._1Qk-ka6_CJz1fU3OUfeznu{margin-bottom:8px}._3ds8Wk2l32hr3hLddQshhG{font-weight:500}._1h0r6vtgOzgWtu-GNBO6Yb,._3ds8Wk2l32hr3hLddQshhG{font-size:12px;line-height:16px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)}._1h0r6vtgOzgWtu-GNBO6Yb{font-weight:400}.horIoLCod23xkzt7MmTpC{font-size:12px;font-weight:400;line-height:16px;color:#ea0027}._33Iw1wpNZ-uhC05tWsB9xi{margin-top:24px}._2M7LQbQxH40ingJ9h9RslL{font-size:12px;font-weight:400;line-height:16px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon);margin-bottom:8px} Dyshidrotic eczema... anyone else get it?? He hadn't wanted to do it, since he (rightly) said that it was a treatment, not a cure, and that I couldn't be on a heavy dose for too long. Many exogenous factors may trigger a flare including dermatophyte infections, contact irritants, and metal hypersensitivity. Cutting out dairy, gluten, sugar, a lot of stuff. For good measure, he also started me on mycophenolate, which is an immuno-suppressant normally given to transplant patients before their transplant surgeries. Thank you for sharing! It didn't. I started to taper the prednisone, and once I got down to 30mg a day and 2g of mycophenolate, the blisters roared back to life as though they'd never skipped a beat. ._2cHgYGbfV9EZMSThqLt2tx{margin-bottom:16px;border-radius:4px}._3Q7WCNdCi77r0_CKPoDSFY{width:75%;height:24px}._2wgLWvNKnhoJX3DUVT_3F-,._3Q7WCNdCi77r0_CKPoDSFY{background:var(--newCommunityTheme-field);background-size:200%;margin-bottom:16px;border-radius:4px}._2wgLWvNKnhoJX3DUVT_3F-{width:100%;height:46px} .FIYolDqalszTnjjNfThfT{max-width:256px;white-space:normal;text-align:center} I even tried apple cider vinegar baths and also mixed it in with everything I was drinking, having heard that that helps some people. With a dermatologist’s help, many people discover what triggers their blisters. Absolutely nothing helped. I also started using oil of oregano. ._33axOHPa8DzNnTmwzen-wO{display:block;padding:0 16px;width:100%}.isNotInButtons2020 ._33axOHPa8DzNnTmwzen-wO{font-size:14px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;line-height:32px;text-transform:uppercase} Every morning I examined my hands and feet and was dismayed that there always seemed to be new blisters. He gave me some steroid creams, the wounds healed up, and again I thought no more about it. Best of luck to you. The wounds were probably two inches by two inches on the top of each foot. For a while, they even thought I had MRSA and put me on the strongest antibiotics on the market - it did absolutely nothing. I'm not crazy about doctors, but none of the over-the-counter remedies had given me any relief whatsoever, so I went to a dermatologist at the recommendation of a friend. None of them required a bandage. It’s most common in people in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. Thanking for sharing the info. And it may just save your self-esteem (and your skin!) I dropped down to 5mg of Prednisone at the behest of my dermatologist. Since I’ve had my second baby and the pandemic began it has been more on constantly. I just prayed that I was one of those individuals. It's mellowed out gradually as I've figured out things that trigger it, but probably also as I've gotten my GI tract figured out too. /*# sourceMappingURL=https://www.redditstatic.com/desktop2x/chunkCSS/IdCard.de628c13230c59091a5d.css.map*/._2JU2WQDzn5pAlpxqChbxr7{height:16px;margin-right:8px;width:16px}._3E45je-29yDjfFqFcLCXyH{margin-top:16px}._13YtS_rCnVZG1ns2xaCalg{font-family:Noto Sans,Arial,sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:400;line-height:18px;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex}._1m5fPZN4q3vKVg9SgU43u2{margin-top:12px}._17A-IdW3j1_fI_pN-8tMV-{display:inline-block;margin-bottom:8px;margin-right:5px}._5MIPBF8A9vXwwXFumpGqY{border-radius:20px;font-size:12px;font-weight:500;letter-spacing:0;line-height:16px;padding:3px 10px;text-transform:none}._5MIPBF8A9vXwwXFumpGqY:focus{outline:unset} November 6, 2020; Curriculum; 0 Comments; Doctors may also refer to dyshidrotic eczema as: Aside from the intensely itchy eczema blisters on fingers, dyshidrotic eczema can also cause redness, flaking and scaly or cracked skin. ._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ{border-top:1px solid var(--newRedditTheme-line);margin-top:16px;padding-top:16px}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._2NbKFI9n3wPM76pgfAPEsN{margin:0;padding:0}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._2NbKFI9n3wPM76pgfAPEsN ._2btz68cXFBI3RWcfSNwbmJ{font-family:Noto Sans,Arial,sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:400;line-height:21px;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;-ms-flex-pack:justify;justify-content:space-between;margin:8px 0}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._2NbKFI9n3wPM76pgfAPEsN ._2btz68cXFBI3RWcfSNwbmJ.QgBK4ECuqpeR2umRjYcP2{opacity:.4}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._2NbKFI9n3wPM76pgfAPEsN ._2btz68cXFBI3RWcfSNwbmJ label{font-size:12px;font-weight:500;line-height:16px;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;-ms-flex-align:center;align-items:center}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._2NbKFI9n3wPM76pgfAPEsN ._2btz68cXFBI3RWcfSNwbmJ label svg{fill:currentColor;height:20px;margin-right:4px;width:20px}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._4OtOUaGIjjp2cNJMUxme_{-ms-flex-align:center;align-items:center;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;-ms-flex-pack:justify;justify-content:space-between;padding:0;width:100%}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._4OtOUaGIjjp2cNJMUxme_ svg{display:inline-block;height:12px;width:12px}.isInButtons2020 ._4OtOUaGIjjp2cNJMUxme_{padding:0 12px}.isInButtons2020 ._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F{font-family:Noto Sans,Arial,sans-serif;font-size:12px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:unset;line-height:16px;text-transform:unset}._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F{--textColor:var(--newCommunityTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetTextColor);--textColorHover:var(--newCommunityTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetTextColorShaded80);font-size:10px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;line-height:12px;text-transform:uppercase;color:var(--textColor);fill:var(--textColor);opacity:1}._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F._2UlgIO1LIFVpT30ItAtPfb{--textColor:var(--newRedditTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetTextColor);--textColorHover:var(--newRedditTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetTextColorShaded80)}._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F:active,._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F:hover{color:var(--textColorHover);fill:var(--textColorHover)}._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F:disabled,._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F[data-disabled],._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F[disabled]{opacity:.5;cursor:not-allowed} It's a helpless feeling when you can't pinpoint what's causing a problem and neither can your doctor. The immunosuppressant made me nauseous for the first two months straight - I lost weight because I had no appetite - and the prednisone raised my blood pressure, which made me feel even sicker. Please ALWAYS FEEL FREE to PM me with questions! Name any steroid cream, I've been on it. your doctor can prescribe an ointment or cream with a steroid in it to bring down swelling and help get rid of the blisters. So yeah, I'm really, really happy for you :). I went on dates for the first time since this started.

It cycles from sores and pain, to so itchy I want to peel my skin off, to flaking off, back to sore. Other names for it include cheiropompholyx, foot and hand eczema, vesicular eczema, and palmoplantar eczema. I was diagnosed with diverticulitis not long after I started having dyshidrotic eczema. Otherwise, it's just the diet change and the supplements. It comes and goes. It runs about $25 a bottle usually, and works really well. I also found a change in diet is absolutely the way to go! The blisters were smaller and healed much faster than they had been. The nurse even took pictures of my hands and feet to show how much better the condition is now. The exact cause of Dyshidrotic Eczema is unknown. I still get PMs every few weeks from people who have found this thread and ask questions. A new blister popped up every now and then, but would begin to heal within 2 days. Always seek the help of a medical professional before undertaking any diet or lifestyle changes. Edit: Two Years Later, 10/31/17 My eczema NEVER came back after I did the diet change and supplements for about 4 months. I did the bleach baths. Over the course of the next two years, my dermatologist and I threw everything we could think of at my dyshidrotic eczema. This is really long, but I'm putting this out there for anyone whom it may help. Each time I dropped the dosage of one of my meds, I would have a small outbreak of blisters on my hands, but nothing close to what it had been. The eczema had spread to about 70% of my body and I was a ball of pure misery. I would get such large blisters on the soles of my feet (it was no longer just contained to the side of my feet) that I was barely able to walk, and would have to go to walk-in clinics and have them drained. A brief background: I'm in my 30's, and for the past 2 years have had awful dyshidrotic eczema - the blisters and itching only on the palms of hands and soles of feet.
