Dyshidrotic Eczema is only seen on palms, soles, and sides of fingers and toes. Tiny opaque bumps called vesicles, thickening, and cracks are accompanied by itching which gets worse at night. A common type of hand eczema, it worsens in warm weather. It is often referred to as pompholyx, vesicular palmoplantar dermatitis and even housewifes eczema. The word pompholyx is derived from the Greek word cheiropompholyx, which means "hand and bubble". Ive had it since i was 18, and it fluxuates. Im fairly certain that it gets worse along with the ME. I wonder if there is some link. Its unberably itchy. I mainly get it on my feet, and the worse is bettween the toes as the skin often cracks and hurts as well as itches. After about 10 visits to the docs, my GP eventually prescribed a strong enough creme to knock it back most of the way. But i lost it somewhere, and i feel gutted cause i just spend LOADS of energy trying to find it but to no avail. I'll go back to the docs and try and get some more but they are really retisent to prescribe the strong stuff, which is because it can thin the skin, but if they only give me the weak stuff then i have to use it for months on end which ultimately is worse than the stronger stuff for two or three days a month. Anyway, back on topic - anyone else get this?
