Common Questions and Answers about Itchy hands peeling skin


Avatar m tn Now its been about 9 hours since we first noticed it, and his hands are fairly clear, peeling-wise. His feet are still peeling on the pads, and around his toes. We have been looking online at Kawasaki's disease, but apart from the peeling skin, there are NO other symptoms of that. We've also read that after a viral infection, the skin on hands and feet can peel. Is this the more likely scenario?
Avatar n tn my 10yr old just recently had a virus, it was diagnosed as an allergy which came from a virus, it started in his feet, he was covered in spots head to toe and rash,( feverish and sore throat which developed later on) he was given anti hisstamines and double base gel, that cleared the spots and rash from body, as they cleared up he was left with a red ring around both eyes which has now dissappeared, however, now his skin on soles of feet and palms of hands are peeling off, underneath the skin is
Avatar n tn 1)in case of infections or medications that cause the skin to peel or, 2) a hereditary disorder known as Peeling Skin Syndrome, all of which may require medical consultation to cure peeling skin. Some of the known causes leading to this skin disorder are: excessive perspiration, staph or viral infections, or excessive sun exposure resulting in sunburn. Peeling skin syndrome is an extremely rare inherited disorder characterized by continual, spontaneous skin peeling or exfoliation.
Avatar n tn the circles all eventually spread from palms, to sides of fingers, and the small circles would get bigger, and eventually connect to other circles until theres a big spot of skin missing. This exposes my second layer of skin, it is not red or itchy, nor is it painful. A week or 2 ago, I started applying Betamethasone cream. Which I cannot tell if it is actually helping. The bigger areas seems much less noticeable, but some areas at the bottom of my palms are still peeling in small circles.
Avatar f tn My mom's skin under her armpits are peeling. They are like shredding clear skin. At first it looks like it is dry and wrinkled and then it starts shredding. Once it is peeled off though, the skin is smooth again. But now her breast area is starting the same thing, dry and wrinkled and then skin peeling. She stays home most of the time so no exposure to sun burn. I wondered if it is because it is a symptom of Menophase? The skin doesn't hurt but sometimes a bit itchy.
Avatar n tn They were itching and burning. Then the skin on my hands and feet started peeling. The skin is peeling thickly. This condition has lasted for a couple of weeks so far. I have included some pictures for your review. [URL=][IMG][/IMG][/URL] [URL=][IMG]http://i16.photobucket.
Avatar n tn every morning i wake up with these little itchy bumps on my hands. it started out just on one hand and only on one finger and then usually goes away by noonish. now they are on both hands and even on my wrists. they are not like blisters and they dont pop. it seems to be getting worse everyday. ive never had any allergies that i know of and am not on any medications.
Avatar n tn I have had problems with the palms of my hands for about a month and a half now. Started out with itchy, red blotches, now my palms are just itchy, peeling, and look striated. A little better, but no great improvement. Have tried everything over the counter, except for cortisone products. Can a deep burn cause these types of symptoms, and for so long? I had worked a part-time job at a mexican fast food restaurant. I stopped working there a week or so before these symptoms began.
Avatar m tn Just make sure to avoid hand sanitizers, cleaning products, and wash your hands less during the peeling and fever hands time. I also think I discovered the solution in the midst of my misery this season. I cut a piece of my aloe plant and rubbed the aloe all over the palms of my hands. Then I took organic pure coconut oil (thanks to all of the people posting with coconut oil suggestions) and put it on top and rubbed it all in.
Avatar n tn Hello, Peeling and flaking hands can be due to contact dermatitis and contact with harsh detergents, soaps and lotions. Sometimes cold, dry air can cause peeling and dermatitis or fungal infections can also cause peeling. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin.
Avatar n tn The skin on both hands, belly, and lower back have been peeling, dry, cracking, and very itchy. It has been about a week now and nothing I have seems to work. I am waiting on an appt to see a dermatologist but it will take awhile and I was wondering if anyone knew what it could be.
Avatar n tn The first stage is acute and presents as itchy blisters on the hands, fingers and toes. Then the chronic stage shows more peeling, cracking, or crusting. Then the skin heals up, or the blistering may start again. The exact cause is not known and excessive sweating can be one of the reasons. To confirm the diagnosis, you need to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist.
Avatar n tn Pompholyx primarily involves the hands and fingers and then may involve the feet. The first stage is acute and presents as itchy blisters on the hands, fingers and toes. Then the chronic stage shows more peeling, cracking, or crusting. Then the skin heals up, or the blistering may start again. The exact cause is not known and excessive sweating can be one of the reasons. Please get it checked from a dermatologist and get this possibility evaluated.

Avatar f tn I realized that both of my hands were completely peeling; fingers, palm, everything. Even a little on my knuckles. I haven't been using any cleaning chemicals or anything. My mom thinks it’s because my cat's kitty litter, but I ruled that out because I've had my cat for a year and this hasn’t happened before... It’s not itchy, it’s not red, there's no pain or little bumps. It’s just very bothersome to look at and feel. The only thing I'm allergic to is penicillin and dust.
Avatar m tn Then those red spot areas itch, sweat, and form fluid filled bums which pop and dry. Now starting at the peeling point is when peeling the skin feels like you are scratching an itch?
Avatar f tn She has peeling skin on her toes. It's pretty bad and she's doesn't think it's Athlete's foot because it doesn't itch and it's not red. It's peeling on her toes only and it's starting to spread very slightly on the balls of her foot. It's not itchy or anything but it's just peeling on her toes and it's pretty bad. She's really scared already but her parents don't want to take her seriously about going to a dermatologist in person.
Avatar n tn The Doctor gave me Eucern top cream and Kenalog-Triamcinolone for the itching and dry itching skin. Two weeks ago the top layer of my skin started peeling, starting with my face. From top to bottom almost all of my top layer of skin has peeled off. There is no pain, just a little itch sometimes. Right now my hands(palms and fingers) have some small patches left and my feet and ankles are almost done peeling.
Avatar n tn I work a physical job with my hands and the pain is insane . Shortly after fishing hands swell and get red . Followed my skin pealing and then raw cracked hands that hurt to touch everything. In these last few years have u found anything that works ?
Avatar n tn The burn are occasionally followed by peeling skin in 3 to 8 days. Some peeling and itching may continue for several weeks. This might be exacerbated by dry skin conditions.The most important aspect of sunburn care is to avoid exposure to the sun while healing and to take precautions to prevent future burns. The best treatment for most sunburns is time. Given a few weeks, they will heal; however, there are a number of treatments that help manage the discomfort or facilitate the healing process.
Avatar f tn every year when the weather is hot my hands become really hot and itchy,i scrath them like mad and end up with blister filled with clear fluid,i can not keep my hands cool especially at night time,i cant sleep at night ive had this for about 15 years,i cant cope with it anymore,what could be causing this
Avatar n tn They will only do this on the areas that scratch, not the whole hand. My skin isn't dry, flaky, or peeling, and I can't think of anything I've recently started using to cause an allergic reaction. This has been happening for a couple months now, and happens at least once a day. Once they're swollen and I poke at the swollen skin, it feels like there's liquid built up underneath it. The skin hasn't broke and bled yet, just very irritated. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!
Avatar f tn My husband is having problems with large spots of skin peeling off his hands. This is not a dry skin condition. He had a contrast dye MRI about four months ago and shoulder surgery following. The skin condition started approximately six week later. At first I thought it might be a fungus infection but it is non responsive to fungal creams. It doesn't itch and is wide spread on both hands. I was concerned about the dye but his hands aren't tight and shiny like nsf.
Avatar n tn Recently, the skin on the fingers of both of my hands has been flaking and peeling. It starts with my fingertips and is especially bad on the sides of my index fingers. It has been going on for several months. I have always had VERY dry skin on my hands and feet but never problems like this. My feet are peeling as well. Moisturizers help but do not alleviate the problem no matter how much or how often I apply.
Avatar n tn For the past 4 months or so I've been having this strange rash. My fingertips, palm of my hands, and bottom of my feet are peeling in small circular shape(not a lot of circles just some here and there). These circles are extermly small. Not bigger than a pencil eraser(most of them appear on my the back of my fingers tips). They don't itchy or cause any kind of pain at all. I'm not sure what it's from.
Avatar n tn After a month I then developed little bumps that itched and when scratched, would ooze clear fluid. Then skin would start peeling and flaking. At the peeling stage my fingers and back of my hand were so dry they would itch like crazy. It got so bad at night laying there with my hands itching, I would get up and scratch them with a hair brush. I took a week vacation, and I noticed the rash calmed down and started to heal.
Avatar m tn Hello, I have a bizarre problem of peeling of skin on my palms. It happens just after winter ends and summer sets in. I have been noticing this every year during the months of March. Hope I get the cause and remedy for this problem in this forum. I have attached a photo as well.
