The skin on the sides of your fingers and on the palms of your hands will become extremely itchy and inflamed if you have eczema on your hands.
People with a family history of this skin condition are usually more vulnerable to it.
In a lot of cases, the children who have this eczema, as they grow older, may have the symptoms appear less frequently.
If this is not controlled quickly, or you scratch to try and relieve the itchiness, the skin can become thickened and cracks and red scaly patches will appear on the skin with possibly excruciating pain on the affected areas.
You should never give in to the urge to scratching these areas of the skin, the best thing for you to do is find creams to help relieve the inflammation and other symptoms.
Generally creams containing corticosteroid are used to reduce the symptoms.
Ways to help prevent and reduce the flare ups of eczema on your hands would be to keep hands dry, avoid dust, animal dander, and harsh detergents and soaps, etc.
