Hand Dermatitis

Hand Dermatitis is one of the most common skin conditions. It can be a debilitating problem. At GK Dermatology, we offer hand dermatitis treatment in Weymouth MA, a convenient location for South Shore MA and Greater Boston MA patients.

Causes of Hand Dermatitis

Hand Dermatitis can result from skin disorders such as atopic dermatitis (eczema) and psoriasis. External factors, such as coming into regular contact with substances, chemicals, irritants, or allergens (latex gloves) may be to blame. Excessive hand-washing and friction are potential factors as well. They may compromise the skin’s integrity and either cause or worsen hand dermatitis. The most common culprit is excessive hand washing.

Symptoms of Hand Dermatitus

Hand dermatitis can manifest itself from small flaky, dry skin, to deeply cracked and fissured skin or severe blistering. The severity of the condition can range as much as the potential causes.
