How to treat dermatitis on the hands?

Hello,

Over the last 4 months I have developed dermatitis on the backs of my hands. They are prone to flaring up reddish/brownish compared to the rest of my pale skin.

Docs have prescribed steroid creams but these haven’t helped. I’m back at the docs soon for a ‘hand scraping’ test.

In the meantime, does anyone have any remedies that work?

Thanks

7.Dyshidrosis. (pomphylox, the id reaction, chronic hand eczema, dyshidrotic eczema) Google images and dermnet.nz …… Does it look like this?
It is allergy to a dermatophyte, which is any kind of skin loving ‘bug’. Mold, yeast, bacteria, virus, parasite, pollen. It could be anywhere on or in your body. The rash on the hands(or feet) is just a red flag. Take anti-histamines for immediate relief. Fexofenadine 180mg, and 8 hours later 60mg, then every 8 hours 60mg. (Allegra to Americans and Sanofi-Aventis give out samples if you ask nicely) This is not the cure. But it will stop the itching. Go to dyshidrosis@yahoogroups for more information. Http//dyshidrosis.co.uk (my website).

This condition is your immune system over-reacting to the presence of a dermatophyte.
The most common dermatophyte is Candida in its dimorphic, mycelial form in the intestines. Which is often diagnosed as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. (IBS)
The cure is really simple, but I very much doubt you can get your doctor to prescribe it for you.
You need a two week course of NYSTATIN by drops, 2 million units daily. That is 5 drops 4 times a day: then a 2 week break, then repeat. If this does not work (and I would bet the cost of your doctor visit it does.) you need a drug called Toctino, to be taken for 90 days. This is expensive, and not great for your liver, you will find a cheaper way on the links at dyshidrosis@yahoogroups.com.
I am studying this condition, also called the ‘Id reaction”. Can I ask you to tell your doctor to refer to page 651, chapter 17 in the 1st volume of the Textbook of Dermatology by Rook, Wilkingson and Ebling.?
You have to realize this is NOT contact dermatitis, and it is not eczema This is a special sort of allergy, and must NOT be treated with steroids and cortisone creams and injection at all. This makes it spread..
All the creams you put on your hand will do nothing for the cure of the condition, but soaking your hand in warm water and vinegar will neutralize the histamine and give you a couple of days relief from itching until the histamine builds up again. Neuragena Norwegian Formula glycerine cream under cotton gloves at night is the least irritant.
Some people find bleach baths help, same applies, neutralizes histamine. But also reduces the fungal load on the skin, and if your dyshidrosis is caused by a seasonal airbourne mold, this is the best treatment.

Podiatrists see a lot more of this condition in response to Tinea, which is athlete’s foot. MD doctors have only out of date treatments and it is a dogma that steroids will take down the inflammation. True, but they cause the spread to new histamine receptors. In fact, it is my theory that steroid/hormonal changes, ie puberty, the pill, pregnancy and pumping iron and the peri menopause which are all hormonal/steroid changes are the inciting cause for the yeast Candida Albicans to morph into the opportunistic pathogen of the mycelia form. This is why it is not detected on allergy tests. Everybody has Candida, but not everybody has candidiasis. Only the mycelial form of Candida seems to cause the major histamine reaction which is Dyshidrosis

Patient Questions:
Do you have any symptoms of IBS?
Do you have athlete’s foot? Ringworm? Any persistent fungal or bacterial infection?

Are you on the Pill? (or HRT)
Did you take a course of steroids or antibiotics at about the time the condition started? (prescribed or not…)

Thinking back to when this started: Did you move to a new house? Area? Or a new job? Was it moldy?

Were you trying to get pregnant? Pregnant? Just been pregnant? Breastfeeding?

Thinking back to when this started: did you have a stomach upset that persisted, did you suddenly become ‘intolerant’ to food that had previously not caused you any problems.

Can you add any information about the starting point of the condition? (Hospitalized, new relationship, rash, holiday, stress)

James asks…

How do I deal with a bad animal allergy?

I have been allergic to animals basically all of my life (I am now 16), and lately it has been much worse than normal. It feels like there is grain behind my eyes, and obviously when it gets really irritable I have to rub them, and they become swollen, watery and bloodshot. I also get an itchy throat and suffer with contact dermatitis on the hands. I make sure that I always wash my hands after being in contact with animals, and I limit it as much as possible, despite being a horse rider and owning rabbits. Does anyone have any tips to ease the symptoms of animal allergy or how to prevent them from occuring?

admin answers:

If you are stuck with a pet you can see an allergist about getting shots every week. But it takes aprox 9 months before they work. Also you must have allergy testing done first to make sure thats what you are really allergic to. Many people who think they are allergic really arent. Benedryl is good for itching but it will knock you out. Also antihistamines taken orally as well as nasal sprays and eye drops can be very helpful. I am allergic to my dog and having an air purifier at home with a HEPA air filter makes a big differece. I also suffer eczema. Unfortunatly eczema has no cure and is made worse by allergens. The only thing that works for this is temprary and that is Prednisone. But i highly DO NOT reccomend it. It will shut down your allergies completely but you usually cant take it any longer than about a week or 2. Its a strong steroid and often makes you gain weight and is very bad for your bones and many other things. The side effects almost arent worth it unless you are suffering incredibly bad. Whenever you pet your animals make sure to wash your hands and change your clothes right away also.
If you currently arent taking anything, i would start with an over the counter medication such as alegra or zertec. See how you feel after taking these for a while. I have been on them every single day for 2 yrs. For your skin, avoid fragrence lotions in irritated spots. Tricalm Seems to work really good for itchy skin from allergic reactions.
Last but not least and most importantly, speak to your parents and your doctor.

How to treat my hands after an allergic reaction?

I have been working at my job for 3 years now and only recently have I been having an allergic reaction to the gloves we have to wear which I find completely weird! They’re vinyl gloves and we have the option to wear powder or non powder. At first I thought I just had eczema but it has gotten worse and I ruled it out and believe it’s the gloves that are causing it since the redness and itchiness get’s worse after work but gets better when I have a couple days off. I switched to non powder but that didn’t work at all. My hands are completely redder than a lobster, itchy, painful, and flaking. I do have a dermatologist appointment next week so I’ll see what she says but before then is there anyway to relieve the pain/itchiness?

admin answers:

Avoid the gloves, wash your hands well, moisturize often, continue to take benedryl exactly as directed, drink more water, & see an allergist.

What are these bumps on my hands and arms?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ka1156w23i0wdcd/2013-06-21%2018.00.01.jpg

Here’s a pic of my hand. The skin on my hands and arms have raised bumps on them. They aren’t itchy or painful, they just appeared one day. I also suffer from contact dermatitis (which itches) and occasional psiriosis (which is scaley) these are neither.

Aside from this and a slight cold I am in good health. I haven’t started using any new products so I don’t think it’s an allergy. Hubby suggested heat rash, but it doesn’t itch. Thoughts?

admin answers:

Its more than likely eczema caused by your skin being too dry, You can try to put moisturizer on them 3-4 times a day if not more this will help. Make sure you use something that doesnt have alcohol in it or it will continue it, If you can avoid the sun i would, and when you get out of the shower blot your skin where it is broke out and apply liberal amounts of your moisturizer within 3-5 minutes so your skin can absorb it, lastly if they are on your hands severe you can buy cotton gloves apply your lotion in heaping amounts to your hands and wear the gloves where you sleep..

Have had a bad cough/cold for the last week and today i got an itchy rash on my fingers then palms of my hands?

I have been pretty sick with some sort of upper respiratory infection my dr said was viral. I have been sick for over a week with a bad cough and this am woke up with a rash on the sides of my fingers. Now its on the palm of my hands and feet and itches pretty bad. Now i have hives on my legs but they dont itch. Cant get to the dr tonight but i can tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone knows what this night be?

admin answers:

Below is my ‘standard’ information.
But it is still the allergy to the infection. You may have Candida in the lungs, rare but happens with pneumonia.
