A blistering kind of eczema typically affecting the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet.

On the palms and soles blisters starting off as tiny pin heads but then merging together into much larger blisters can cause extreme distress and the patient can become bed bound with this severe form of eczema. The treatment needs to be very intensive and the patient does need to take a rest from work usually in order to apply these intensive treatments to the palms and soles.

Quite complicated treatment advised by expert consultation will usually be required. You can get a consultation here.
