Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through the attachments (attachment removed to protect patient identity)

I can see grain like vesicles clustered on the palms and the sides of fingers.

It seems like pompholyx i.e. dyshidrotic eczema.

I suggest you apply a topical steroid e.g Clobetasol propionate 0.05 % ointment twice daily.

In addition, I suggest you take an oral antihistamine e.g Cetirizine 10 mg tablet once every evening for symptomatic relief from itching. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and with their consent take the medicine.
