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, that is dyshidrotic eczema.

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

In addition, I suggest you take an oral antihistamine like 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.
