About dyshidrosis

On this page, you will find all the information about dyshidrosis: what is it? What are its symptoms? What treatments exist for dyshidrosis? How can it be relieved?

What is dyshidrosis?

Dyshidrosis is a form of bullous eczema, found mainly on the hands and/or feet. It is also called pemphigus, or dyshidrotic eczema.

This illness generally evolves by outbreaks (or crisis), interrupted by phases of remission. The causes of the dyshidrosis outbreaks are yet unknown, but an excessive sweating and/or a humid environment seem to be linked, if not to the triggering factor, at least to the aggravation of the outbreak. In addition, allergies such as Nickel or Chromium (or other metal) allergies are frequently associated with dyshidrosis.

What are the symptoms of dyshidrosis?

Dyshidrosis is characterised by the apparition on the skin of vesicles filled with serum. These vesicles can be more or less deep, and lead to itching, pain, or be asymptomatic.

How can dyshidrosis be treated?

There are no treatments that can cure dyshidrosis, but only treatments of its symptoms. These can be local treatments, with the use of antiseptic baths (with sodium hypochlorite, potassium permanganate or chlorhexidine), topical treatments (corticosteroids, hydrating products), or systemic treatments (antihistamines, sometimes anxiolytics, cyclosporine or methotrexate). Other approaches can be considered, like water cures or PUVA phototherapies. Drug treatments often have unwanted side effects which limit their use in the long run.

How can dyshidrosis be relieved?

Many people suffering from eczema or dyshidrosis use these products because they have seen a notable improvement in their skin quality and comfort.
