Common Triggers and Treatments of Hand Eczema

Do you ever experience rough or red, scratchy flakes on your hand? This may be due to hand eczema, or hand dermatitis. Taking care of your hands is essential in practicing daily activities such as cooking, cleaning, driving, and more. It’s important to keep gentle care of your skin to avoid conditions like hand eczema.

Hand eczema, or dyshidrotic dermatitis, mainly comes from contact with irritants and allergens; it can also come from genetics. Symptoms of hand eczema include dryness, itching, redness, and cracks in the skin. Once coming in contact with the irritant, symptoms will start to form shortly. This condition is not contagious, but it can be chronic.
