Pompholyx eczema is also called dyshidrotic eczema. It is a blistery rash that is very deep rooted and is extremely itchy. It normally breaks out on the palms, soles, and the sides of a person’s fingers. Most professionals today believe this affliction is caused from an allergic reaction that is genetic in nature.

This type of eczema can affect all age groups but seems to be more common in men aged 20 to 50. It is most likely a reaction to something that the person has come in contact with that they are allergic to. Things like balsam, cobalt, and nickel can cause reactions. Nickel is commonly found in jewelry.

Certain things can make people suffer from pompholyx eczema, such as:

  • Anxiety can make the skin more apt to develop disorders including pompholyx eczema. This is due to the fact that many people sweat more when they become anxious.
  • Bacterial and other types of the skin infections can make the person at risk for this condition.
  • Extremes in temperature at either end, high humidity, personal or genetic sinusitis or other respiratory conditions.
  • Stress.
  • Some professionals also believe that fungal infections in the body can spur on pompholyx eczema.

Treatments for pompholyx eczema are available. Treatments often include keeping the skin cool and dry, because when you become hot and sweaty it aggravates the condition.

Treatment can include antihistamines to help with the itching, compresses using Burow’s solution to help soothe the rash and lesions, and chelation therapy which helps with the effects of nickel exposure. Phototherapy has been found successful is some cases.
