Hello! Thank you for writing.

Dyshidrotic eczema, or dyshidrosis, is a skin condition in which blisters develop on the soles of your feet and/or the palms of your hands. The blisters are usually itchy and may be filled with fluid. Blisters normally last for about two to four weeks and may be related to seasonal allergies or stress. Because the symptoms of dyshidrotic eczema can be similar to those of other skin conditions, it's important to see your doctor as we can only give you general information. In many cases, your doctor will be able to diagnose dyshidrotic eczema by examining your skin carefully.
