What is Hand Dermatitis?
Also known as hand eczema, hand dermatitis is a common condition that affects up to 10 percent of the population. Because the hands are in use every day and are exposed to a variety of environmental factors, there may be multiple factors that trigger this condition.
Hand dermatitis can carry multiple uncomfortable and sometimes embarrassing symptoms, such as:
These can develop in varying combinations and severities, and our medical team at Dermatology Consultants of South Florida can help alleviate your symptoms and restore your confidence in your skin with physician-directed treatments. Rather than hiding your hands or trying over-the-counter remedies that may or may not work, call our experienced medical team today for physician-directed solutions that are tailored to your condition.
What Causes Hand Dermatitis?
This condition can be caused by genetics and can also be experienced by individuals who work closely with chemicals, such as hairdressers, cleaning, catering, and healthcare. At Dermatology Consultants of South Florida, we can evaluate your individual condition and discuss treatment options for the management of your dermatitis.
How is Hand Dermatitis Treated?
Although there are some at-home methods you can use to relieve some cases of hand dermatitis, chronic or more severe cases may require medical attention. A topical medication may be prescribed to soothe your irritated skin, and most patients are advised to avoid excessive scratching of affected areas to reduce the risk of infection. If your condition does not go away after a few weeks and is causing you discomfort or to be self-conscious about your skin, our medical team can address your concerns and alleviate your symptoms.
