i can only type with one hand so its too hard to use shift key with one hand. sorry. my hand eczema is out of control. there are tiny vessicles or blisters all over my left hand at the moment. my hand eczema never goes away. it simply shifts from different parts of the hands. right hand is never as bad as left. i scratch my hand at night. i have tried many creams over the counter. nothing stops the maddening itch. the blisters oozing everywhere. two fingers have almost no out layer of skin and are red and raw. the skin that was scratched off at night reveals the sponge like appearance and oozes profusely. i made a dermatologist appointment the 30th of this month. i cannot bend my hand or bathe like this. its really hard to dress myself and usually results in cracking and bleeding of the skin. what can i do until i see the doctor? what treatment options are available? any advice on what to discuss with doctor?
Are you sure its eczema? When the lady I took care of came home from the hospital one time, she was covered with it, all over her body. We washed her skin using selsun blue shampoo. The dermatologist told us to, we didn't go crazy. She never had a blisters, however she did have oozing of clear straw colored fluid from the inflammation, and it would crust and if scrubbed off she'd bleed. It has to be soaked off, because if its left the skin just gets sorer. After it was cleansed we used cortisone cream on it.
I also have this same condition i have seen 3 different dermatoligist and nothing any of them did worked not even alittle they all tried the same things my reg doctor put me on presnazone and that help the blisters and oozing and flaky skin it does nt clear it up completly but it is about 75 percent better than using the cream also keeping them dry helps alot to try wearing some cottin gloves to bed u can get them at cvs it will help keep them dry and wene u scratch at nite it will help not to rip off skin i know how bad the itching is u know ur making urself bleed but it feels good i know thats weird but true hope this help somewhat:)
